FreeBSD The clocks have fallen back, the leaves are hitting the ground and new BSD releases are on the Net. Among all the noise and buzz created by Linux, it's important to remember that it's not the only open source variant of Unix. OpenBSD, NetBSD and FreeBSD are all still very much alive and kicking and have recently been released from their respective projects.

One more thing.. since I don't use packages myself, I'm not sure about FreeBSD's reaction when you try to install a package whose version is lower than the version in the ports tree (this might have been the problem you experienced).
If you had an issue about that, you might find an answer in the docs, or maybe on irc (##freebsd @ irc.freenode.net - I've always found them extremely friendly)
