I dunno - but it seems to me that if someone, or some entity is going to write a review, the review is based on the reviewers experiance. to me, anything else would be considered hear-say, and really not a review at all. More, an opinion from other sources. That being said, the sources paraphrased would not represent a fair review in the othe camps eye. I might suggest simply doing a head to head eval of a distro of Linux, give it 30 days, then do the same with FBSD. Then, and only then (in my eyes) could you actually, and fairly write a review. Just my 2 pennies.
