Yes that is a great read. Ideal for sending to Linux-using friends who 
can't understand why I'm not using Linux myself.

Personally I found it from my daily email from Google News which tells 
me about any new postings to news sites that contain "FreeBSD". I've 
found it very useful for seeing what large and small sites are saying 
about FreeBSD, even if just mentioning it in passing.
