I'd like to see portage in FBSD though, since ruby is pretty kludgy.
You'd like to port a knockoff of ports to a system that has ports?
(also, not sure what you're referring to with your 'ruby' comment.)

In my experience, people develop on Linux and Linux distributions more,
just because it's the current `popular' system. FreeBSD is still (imo)
better, though, despite its smaller following.
No; you guys misunderstood what I meant...

Unless you do make install / deinstall for all your ports in your system and magically know when and which ports to upgrade when the time comes to upgrade them, you're probably using portupdate / portinstall, or one of the ruby based metapackages (portman for instance).

Having less packages on a system in order to keep it up to date is key in many cases, and I believe that perl is a more widely used language than ruby is. That's why I made the comment I made.
