When there are hardware problems with FreeBSD that doesnt mean "freebsd is
hard to use", It means the Proyect is incompetent and is not organized.

Take a stadistical information about questions list on freebsd.org and
most of the questions are hardware related problems.

FreeBSD doesnt see that as a 'weakness' cuz they are el1t3 at kernel
