Well - perhaps the next step might be to look at what tech-apps there are for
Linux? Would they run under Lin-Emu?
After that, would be to take the bull by the naughty-bits and port an app of
your liking to FBSD.
I too can sit and bad-yack, but it's like politics - if you don't vote, you
have no right to complain about how the country is ran.
I'm not a coder - I don't complain (much). So, I praise all the good things
that FBSD has done thus far and anticipate all the good still to come.
