I disagree. Wikipedia isn't a good definitive source of knowledge.
StackOverflow from what I've seen is good at answering questions, but
not for advocating particular OSes.

What we need is:
1. An advocate for FreeBSD.
2. One or more unbiased third parties who can talk about the pros and
cons of FreeBSD vs other OSes.

If our OS gets really good in some of the areas that have been
identified as gaps, then the two groups will effectively converge over
