Even i could spit out some good arguments in favor of FreeBSD
as a superior *workstation* platform for the serious

Ok, just to get serious,
i couldn't live without the base64 programm and the unique history 
completion of tcsh
(not found in any linux i know of).

Not to say about the only free unix implementation of JavaComms
in FreeBSD ports.

Also it strikes me (alright starting to feel i am getting in chat mode),
that after a decade of intense advocacy, public attention, 
and corporate support, linuxes are still on par with FreeBSD,
which is based on few (compared to linux) individuals...

I wouldn't classify this "operation linux" as high "value for effort".
