FreeBSD I've been using computers since I was quite young and have been using Unixlike OSes for about two years. Most of my life I've used Macs and only started using Windows and Unixlike OSes recently for programming. I'm good at learning OSes as long as they are documented. I've been using FreeBSD for about a year and a half.

Re:Better choice over linux

An advantage of *BSD over Linux in my opinion is consistency. My FreeBSD server and my OpenBSD firewall are clean and logical machines (just look into /etc). My Linux desktop is overall not... I think of switching my main OS from Linux to FreeBSD since I can get NVidia drivers for FreeBSD, but I'm not sure yet. I think I will try FreeBSD as a desktop on a laptop I might buy soon.
