Being an experienced BSD user who on a daily basis gives support to other 
people using BSD, wether FreeBSD, OpenBSD or NetBSD, I hardly think this has to 
do with FreeBSD.

This rather sounds like a typical MS whiner, who hasn't really got around to 
actually understand what he is doing. In some situations there are hardware 
complications, which again hasn't got anything to do with FreeBSD but rather is 
based upon hardware vendores keeping others than MS from using their hardware.

Long story short, stop whining and just go back to MS Windows. Nobody cares!
