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.

"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)."

Comparing a kernel with an OS is an unfair compare (and not so smart if you ask me).

With which GNU/Linux distributions are you comparing FreeBSD and OpenBSD to? Otherwise, you're generalizing.

I've never found my /etc on my Debian GNU/Linux or Gentoo Linux boxes inconsistent. Not in any way i can think of.
