AWS has 32% market share. I don't know if they beans are magic or not, 
but this is the biggest cloud today. If FreeBSD want to be on this 
train, it has to perform at least as good as competitors. It's simply 
matter of survival for this project.

In 2007 about 90% of my machines were running FreeBSD (30-40 servers). 
Now I run FreeBSD on 9 boxes, and 130 is running Linux. And I'm not the 
only one out there who was forced to do this transition.
