FreeBSD is widely used as a server. Being such, hands on it are of administrators which prefer the way it is, as is. It shines over ALL in the use of command line.
I think you would be much better off trying Linux Mandrake instead. ---- Hello, 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.
