I'm working on a project for my client, and I spent the better part of
two days trying to get my laptop running OSX to have the right
combination of BerkeleyDB and Perl modules to build what I wanted.
Turns out my Perl 5.10.1 install was incompatible with BerkeleyDB on
OSX, but the macports version 5.8.9 was also in the wrong path, ugh.
Finally, I said "hey, freebsd would do better here".
Within a half day, I had a freebsd VMWare image up and running,
executing precisely the code I wanted, and I was able to take my
development to the next round.
FreeBSD. The Ports Just Work. Nothing else like it.
