To me, device drivers really troubled me a lot.  Windows for games is
okay.  But Solaris doesn't work well either in my laptop or my
desktop.  FreeBSD is only happy with my laptop, which now I work on.
So I install Linux in my desktop, which is my main OS.  LVM2 on top of
raid works perfectly.  And I like the portage system in Gentoo, which
resembles FreeBSD's ports system.  Sorry for this OT, but I really
think Solaris is not ready yet for my crapy hardware.
