"X -> mostly the same support
Audio -> almost the same
TV -> a field of Linux, but they have some unstable drivers too in kernel
Network/Wlan -> no real difference, maybe better in OBSD"


As far as I experienced, some Linusi recognize hardware that PC-BSD doesn't, but the majority of standard components can be used with both of them. So both are nearly equivalent. If I can believe some informations I've heard, Linux does support more hardware than "Windows" does, so maybe this is true for PC-BSD, too?

Does "TV" refer to the TV out (video) of GPUs or HDTV 'n stuff? Or multimedia capabilities? I would like to get the video output of my ancient ATI RV250 Radeon 9000/9000 working. :-)
