I do not understand why it has to be promoted like this at all.

FreeBSD itself ist just a plain operating system.

All the programs needed to make it a server or a desktop are in the ports.

As long as the programs needed for a certain purpose are in the ports, 
FreeBSD is the choice. The moment the programs are not available in the 
ports, do not use FreeBSD.
