Okay. I've installed FreeBSD on my desktop. I got KDE working, and Amor is running so I have a little daemon sitting on my window. I can mount my USB card reader and open the pictures from my digital camera in Gimp. I can browse the web in Firefox. I even compiled my own kernel so that I'm all 1337. :-)
Overall, I like FreeBSD--the kernel build process felt a lot smoother than Linux, the /boot and /sys file heirarchies makes more sense to me than /boot and /usr/src under Linux, and the /dev heirarchy seems sane, though it's still pretty alien to me. So far, everything I do under Linux I can do under FreeBSD. FreeBSD is nice, but I haven't seen anything really *compelling* about it. FreeBSD might be more stable as a server, but for my desktop Linux has proven more than stable enough. (X crashes sometimes, but FreeBSD can't really fix that.) The extra file flags look intersting, but otherwise I haven't seen anything that I can do under FreeBSD that I can't with Linux. So, basically, I'm asking you guys to wow me. :-) Show me how FreeBSD can outdo Linux. Make me never want to go back.
