Would you care to elaborate on the "10X better than Ubuntu" statement?

I quite like PC-BSD when I tried it, but I am an Ubuntu/openSUSE user (desktop/laptops respectively) - one thing that always put me off BSD was the people who use *BSD - they see anyone who uses Linux as an enemy who is just as bad as a Vista user. I think a more accurate statement would be that "BSD fanboi's are 10x worse than Linux ones" ;)

BSD users treat GNU/Linux users the same way that GNU/Linux folks treat Windows users. If, as a Linux user you are turned off by the treatment, maybe you should think about it...

they see anyone who uses Linux as an enemy who is just as bad as a Vista user

There is nothing inherently wrong with those who choose to use MS products (they are not somehow "bad"), but this sort of contemptuous comment turns a lot of folks off. I can't imagine that one's choice of an OS speaks much to their character.
