(Responding to random post) Could we please *close* this discussion now? This is simply a waste of the list resources, people will always have ideas on why an OS is better or worse than another. If the original poster wanted to know something about all this, he would have probably commented by now. Has it come to anyone's mind that the original post was probably a simple act of trolling? (and someone is now amused by all this?) In the end, when someone is presented with the facts and can have a hands on experience with a system (and it won't cost him a dime to do so), he can decide whether he wants to use it, whether it can replace his current system and whether he is willing to climb the steep learning curve. Let's give people choice, we don't need to force this or any other OS down anyone's throat. Let's just help whoever comes in here - Some will appreciate FreeBSD *and* the community and will stay. And it will be there choice.
