FreeBSD By now, anyone who is even remotely related to an IT-type position has heard about Linux, and has most likely used it, if only to see what all the hype is about. However, GNU/Linux is not the only "free" Unix type OS available. FreeBSD and its cousins, NetBSD and OpenBSD are all offshoots of BSD UNIX, a commercial UNIX also known as Berkeley Software Distribution. This article will help you learn more about FreeBSD, its differences from Linux, and it will ease a potential migration process.

Nothing is user friendly

First, no, I just skipped you comment. Just a tiny-bit too long for my taste.

Second, someone else a couple hundred lines up stated that Windows is more user friendly than "fill in blank here". I would agree, that when you first install Windows, it is this way. But I get calls weekly from friends who have problems with the windows box. Usually due to bad software. Which is my point. Nothing will ever be completely user friendly. I have 7 OSs installed over 4 boxes, just because, and I'll admit it, I'm a geek. We're all geeks, otherwise we wouldn't be reading this comments area. But, as long as people write lousy applications, the user experience is going to be bad, and this happens on every os. There are many other reasons that *each" os is user/not-user friendly, but not ONE is completely user-friendly.
