I know about the focus, but this is no 'desktop' use, it's a
music workstation, not some fun-with-music-apps pc.  I have been
satisfied with performance and stability back in the days i was
solely using freebsd, and that's why I would prefer to use it
than start over with linux.

Now, OSS is commercial, so I wouldn't like to go with it.  I
know 30 bucks is not much but it's against my views for my
new studio.

P.S.:  Anyone here that uses freebsd for a music workstation?
       (that was the original question, it's still in the
       Subject, but oh well..)
