I dont have a question but I would like to make a statement. I downloaded 
Freebsd version 5.0 release
             and unpacked it in great anticipation. I made a bootable CD (the best I 
could, It's not as easy as making
             a bootable windows CD) put the cd in my rom and found that BSD is not for 
me. Look, Im not trying 
              to put BSD down or anything, I would love to have it on my computer 
fully working so that I could 
              use something other than Windows! Im by no means bored with Windows, I 
find new and exciting 
              things out with it all the time.I feel that im pretty literate when it 
comes to computers, which brings
              me to this: You people have to make a product that is just slightly more 
user friendly.Cant you 
              think of a way to auto-mount your os like windows? Setting up your os is 
like trying to work your
              way through a jigsaw puzzle.(Windows even partitions your drive for you) 
If someone expects to
              challenge the makers of Windows they are going to have to come up with a 
user friendly system
               like Windows where you have an easy command format instead of what your 
trying to do. I mean
               come on, first you have to figure out what to partition the drive in 
because you dont explain any
               of this, then you have to mount everything,which is beyond the average 
users comprehension,
               then you have to figure out commands to pass along to the 
kernel..etc...etc...etc. With Windows
               all you do is stick in the disk and it's all pretty straight forward 
from there on out.

               Please, if you could just tell me of one of your systems thats a little 
more user friendly I would 
               love to use it, and tell all my friends about it too so that they can 
spread the word about the new
               operating system thats fun and easy to use.
