Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Mark Shuttleworth is trying to entice OpenSUSE developers to join Ubuntu. "Novell's decision to go to great lengths to circumvent the patent framework clearly articulated in the GPL has sent shockwaves through the community. If you are an OpenSUSE developer who is concerned about the long term consequences of this pact, you may be interested in some of the events happening next week as part of the Ubuntu Open Week."

Linux hardware support is really better, but not that MUCH.

And openBSD, yes, support more wireless chipsets, if you only speak of free driver. FreeBSD has less free wireless driver.

But Project Evil can run so much more wireless drivers from Windows XP it makes openBSD looks like crap.

And with this wireless exception, openbsd doesn't support as much hardware as FreeBSD does. FreeBSD can run the proprietary NVidia driver, that's more important for 99% of the desktop folks than some obscure crypto card.
