I have always wanted to try out FreeBSD. But the horror stories of installing it kept me from trying it out.

Installing FreeBSD is just as simple as installing Linux - if you select the right distribution of FreeBSD. Ever heard of FreesBIE? It's an excellent LiveCD distro of FreeBSD, autodetected every bit of hardware in each of my PCs, so I think it's going to work for most people out there.
