PC-BSD A known and usual problem with alternative operating systems is getting them on normal users' desktops. OEMs won't take you seriously until you gain massive traction, and even then your chances are still pretty low. So, iXsystems, PC-BSD's parent company, decided to take matters into its own hands, and has unveiled a PC-BSD workstation, with a PC-BSD laptop under way.

It's what happens when you jump into the proprietary wagon. The guys there look cool and nice at first but then you find yourself thrown down a bridge with concrete boots.
You are voting with your money(and this also goes to OEMs). Don't vote for the Ass-Rapers Party.

Oh yes, people are voting with their money. It's a shame the rather small (by comparison) amount of people who care about open source vs proprietary don't really have enough buying power to make a dent as compared to those who don't... and usually, we end up voting the other way than the masses. People are voting with their money, and we're getting proprietary everything because of it since, like it or not, most people don't care as long as it works.
