Can I simply add a plus one here?
I couldn't agree more on this. It seems very odd to me to read "FreeBSD"
documentation. Only to have it explain how to use it through the use of 3rd
party software. Isn't it supposed to teach new users how to use the features
_provided by FreeBSD?
I see no reason not to touch lightly on 3rd party alternatives. But, honestly.
Making the article primarily about 3rd party software is just wrong.

Good example, Miroslav, and thanks! :-)
