FreeBSD SoftwareInReview, well, reviews FreeBSD 6.1, and concludes: "Overall I found FreeBSD 6.1 to be another step in the right direction, and I think it's encouraging that there weren't any revolutionary base system changes in this release. Sometimes big changes are unavoidable, but historically the FreeBSD team has bungled such leaps as the switch to the ULE scheduler, the introduction of SMP, and the liberation of the base system from the big giant lock. Sometimes you have to stop and make sure that what you presently have is working properly, and it looks like now is that time for FreeBSD. I applaud their efforts with 6.1 and look forward to testing 6.2."

OMG. this person is being converted, please resist.
FreeBSD's ports is the only true path.

I don't understand why people are whining about ports in a FreeBSD 6.1 Review. And every time again when there's a FreeBSD article. Go debian or build you own APT-get. Not to speak about the senseless logo debate over and over again.
