Though perhaps it can be ignored if just using PBI indeed works. But never never tell a non-BSD user that in order to update the system, you need to run three make commands, and then to upgrade the rest, you need a few more commands. Linux people are used to doing all that in a single command.

LOL - I had a debate with a FreeBSD user friend of mine about this - I kept on asking him why that method was superior to the Linux single command - after a long, long debate he resorted to the sentence "It just is" :-p

The same guy also told me when I was moaning that there should be a simple "security centre" in Ubuntu where you control firewall/antivirus/antispam etc that people who use OSS software don't need security products as the code is so superior and that security software is an MS-only plague. Sad to say - he had been using FreeBSD for years!
