FreeBSD "For software that's been around since the late '70s, before any of today's more popular operating systems, open source BSDs (in their current avatars) don't get their due share of hard disks. FreeBSD, one of the first BSD flavors to emerge from the 386BSD project, is a Unix-like free operating system based originally on the BSD branch of 386BSD and later 4.4BSD-Lite. This makes BSDs more like traditional Unixes than Linux. Late last year FreeBSD unleashed release 6.0, with better support for 64-bit and wireless hardware. Here's our review."

Anyway...
I've been using Gnu/Linux cause, it just happened to stand on the library book shelf for 6 years ago.
So maybe my argument is rather, "I am stuck here, why move?".

The thing I cannot understand, is that you don't seem to respect the work the Gnu/Linux community has done?

I mean a Gnu/Linux operatingsystem today, is the most powerful *FREE* desktop system.
You got HAL, D-BUS and other good core components that makes your work smoothier.
And there are something kalled Freedesktop standards.
Anyway, isn't the gnu core tools, binutils etc -
arent it good software?

And sometimes you seem like you are a Windows fanboy, then I sometimes think you where the one who took FreeBSD to the Microsoft Server Halls in the 90'ies.

I don't know who I am going to trust now?

There are bashing people on all areas(Linux Community, Micrososft, *BSD).
But your comments are rather taking my mind to use FreeBSD.

Go ahead, write that article.
Show the world that linux users is living a lie - if it is what you mean.

You make very little sense, but you also make blanket statements. Saying that Linux is "the most powerful free desktop system" is extremely narrow-minded.

I don't suppose I have a chance of enlightening you.

I'd like to point out that FreeBSD has D-BUS and HAL is in the middle of being ported.
