I could not agree more. :-) Oh, and don't forget that BSD licensed
software is also Free Software, so if you want that, you got that. It is
fun to point this fact out to some "Linux evangelists" and see the
expression on their face. But to be fair, many Linux users *are*
knowledgeable and value BSD systems because of their technical merits.
At least I have met many such users. This does not mean that they are
using it, but that's ok. If you get used to a particular tool, you are
most productive with that tool. I also have trouble understanding some
aspects of Linux sysadmin work at times when I have to do something
quickly, or even some aspects of Net/OpenBSD since I have been a FreeBSD
user for the last 9 years, so I am most productive with (Free)BSD.
