Why?  Mac OS X has a complete unix freebsd-like core called darwin
( http://www.darwin.org ).  There's no reason to install freebsd on

folder), compile your favorite progs and go.


Why not? I don't see why people tell people to not run FreeBSD
on a mac. I've seen this quite a bit on the mailing list and it kind
bugs me, mainly because the same could be said about anything.
Like why run FreeBSD on a sparc with there is solaris, or why
run FreeBSD on x86 when there is linux or windows with the
windows services for unix. Don't get me wrong, I have 2 macs
with OS X and I don't plan to change that any time soon.
If it works why not run FreeBSD on it if they want too?
