FreeBSD We've all heard the age old argument second only to the vi vs. emacs religious wars: FreeBSD Vs Linux. As a long time linux user, I decided that is was time I spent some time on the other side of the fence to see if it was any greener. Oh, and by the way, vi rules.

GNU Free?

Hmm, so you could run FBSD mostly GNU-free, so long as you didn't want to compile anything. :-)

Out of curiosity, has anyone tried the Intel compiler (in the ports system) for compiling (a) other ports, (b) the kernel, (c) the "world" (i.e., updating the system)? What results?
