I'm interested in changing over to FreeBSD from Windows, but I'll have
to say, you guys don't really present a forceful argument to Windows
users of how easy the switch may be. I get knee-deep in FreeBSD jargon
the second I get to your webpage. I need to see an overwhelming argument
that FreeBSD is a perfectly acceptable alternative for home desktop
users who have previously known only Windows.
For instance, if I download and install FreeBSD, will I instantly have a
desktop windowing environment that I can navigate in while I figure out
what's going on? Will I have a browser and way to setup an internet
connection right off the bat? How will I migrate files from other
I understand you guys have been around for a while, but you don't seem
to understand the monumental "fear" involved in switching operating
systems. You need to address those concerns head on from the start. I
need to see several screenshots of apps that I can use as alternatives
to what I have.
Help me (and yourselves) out.

telling the truth is a revolutionary act.”
