"But never never tell a non-BSD user that in order to update the system, you need to run three make commands, and then to upgrade the rest, you need a few more commands. Linux people are used to doing all that in a single command. "

Funny how I only have to use one command, "pkg_add -u", to upgrade all packages on OpenBSD. As fun as it is to make blanket statements it does not reflect the real world.
It's like if I would say "Linux package management lacks dependency tracking" and basing that "fact" entirely upon my usage of Slackware and extrapolating that to all Linux distros.

Funny how people continuously evade the issue.

I was referring to updating the whole system.

Funny how that still isn't done the same way on the different *BSD's.
