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.

Sysinstall

Just configure sysinstall to use any number of the package FTP sites, and you can browse to your hearts content. It installs the deps for you, and does all the dirty work. Though, I don't really see what's so bad about /usr/ports... I use it for all my software.

By the way, this wasn't so much a review of 4.9 as a general "well, here's my experience with it". FreeBSD is NOT Linux, and should not be reviewed as if it were.
