Why FreeBSD sucks

Not to be feeding the troll, but being a scientist, I must wonder  
about the approach used by the poster to arrive at the conclusion  
that "FreeBSD sucks." In order for that conclusion to be valid, they  
must first have disproved all other possible explanations. For  
instance, might it be that it is in fact Dell that sucks? What data  
was used to refute that notion? The poster did not provide any such  
data, therefore one must leave open the possibility that they never  
questioned Dell's quality. That would make their conclusion invalid  
or at the very least premature.

I apologize for allocating so much brain-power to this, but I haven't  
had much caffeine yet today and thought it would be fun to inject a  
bit of humor. Please don't take any of this seriously. :)
