FreeBSD "For software that's been around since the late '70s, before any of today's more popular operating systems, open source BSDs (in their current avatars) don't get their due share of hard disks. FreeBSD, one of the first BSD flavors to emerge from the 386BSD project, is a Unix-like free operating system based originally on the BSD branch of 386BSD and later 4.4BSD-Lite. This makes BSDs more like traditional Unixes than Linux. Late last year FreeBSD unleashed release 6.0, with better support for 64-bit and wireless hardware. Here's our review."

Anyway, Gnu/Linux is the most userfriendly secure desktop operatingsystem out there.
But for geeks it maybe doesn't turn out to be good.

Btw, I am n00b when it comes to FreeBSD. I have not much experience. I know there is something called linux binary support. I do code quite much with the Qt4 toolkit and are somewhat dependent on that. Is it enjoyable to code/use it with FreeBSD?

One more thing. You seem not to like gnu/linux or the linux kernel at all - do you argue that the whole gnu/linux, linux community is living a lie? I mean do you think it is a joke? Don't you respect Linus Torvalds and other big players who has done things around gnu/linux? Hope you don't get mad ;)

I don't want to personally jump on you - I am so curious. Cause you seem to be so HARD on this question.
