In my opinion, FreeBSD will remain the most orthodox unix ever, but used only 
by an élite of perfectionists. I am proud and happy to loose my mind into 
Amnesiac: I know behind it there is the work of the very best unix hands. 
What others do, it's none of our business.

Live free - and perfectionist - or die
