I installed FreeBSD 5.0 this weekend at home and
removed it five hours laters.  Two problems made this
use of this OS prohibitive for me, although I was
hoping to stop using Debian and start using FreeBSD.

1) Awful performance on the sound subsystem under
heavy load.  If I copy large files, or start the
X-Window while playing an MP3, it would simply stop
playing while the disk is being accessed.

2) (the most important) I have a second HD with all my
data in ext3.   Although I could remove the journal
and use it as a ext2, it simply didn't work as
expected and eventually it became corrupted and the
ext2utils could'nt repair it.  When I installed Debian
again, it spent more then 40 min fsck the disk.

3) Really degraded performance on X-Window and Galeon.
 their performance under Debian (xfree 4.1) is MUCH
more smoother and even perceivably faster!

Can anybody here confirm if these are common problems,
and if there are any settings I might tune for their
removal?   I really wish I could change to FreeBSD.
