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.

FreeBSD Desktop

I love FreeBSD as a server os. But on the Desktop I would say Gentoo, or Red Hat/Fedora. My reason being, that half the port moderators don't create the icons for their gui programs. So if you install gnome, and you want to run mozilla you have to crack open a terminal and type mozilla &. This is small, but it pisses me off to no end, what is the point of a gui/DE if you have to crack open the terminal to run most programs. In gentoo all the the icons are created when installed and installed in the gnome start menu. But again. I think FreeBSD is a better server OS, more logical, unified and easy to administer.
