FreeBSD Some people already submitted this news last week, but it wasn't until today that it became official: the FreeBSD team has announced the release of FreeBSD version 9.0. As you may expect from the major version number change, this is releas eis packed with new stuff.

I used to like FreeBSD once, but nowadays I can't help but wonder if the FreeBSD and the OpenBSD projects really care the usability of their operating systems or not.

I find OpenBSD more usable for some things (BGP, Firewall etc) than Linux. So obviously it has usability. Maybe not for you but that's not a universal measurement.

The other one, OpenBSD, is stuck on making you upgrade every six months

You don't have to upgrade every 6 months but it's recommended. If you have an issue with this then OpenBSD is obviously not for you but please understand that not everything in this world is designed to cater to your tastes.

the same BSD-ization craze

Unsubstantiated flattery will get you nowhere.

and on an unreasonably ancient userland.

What ancient userland?
