Well - perhaps the next step might be to look at what tech-apps there are for 
Linux? Would they run under Lin-Emu? 

After that, would be to take the bull by the naughty-bits and port an app of 
your liking to FBSD. 

I too can sit and bad-yack, but it's like politics - if you don't vote, you 
have no right to complain about how the country is ran.

I'm not a coder - I don't complain (much). So, I praise all the good things 
that FBSD has done thus far and anticipate all the good still to come.
