Many FreeBSD users think that their IA-32 systems running freebsd are
"powerfull" or "versatile", that is false.
FreeBSD has the most clean and serious style, but The group doesnt care
about important things like suspend a mobile machine.
There are many unix free os and all of them offer the same, they are just
programmer who feel "elite" playing with a shell, but there are no leaders
of information technology.
Ask a freebsd developer about "Spiral model" or waterfall model or rules
about software modularity, they hay no idea about that.
They just care about un1x hax0ring and stuff like that.

FreeBSD proyect needs management, understand clients needs, divide the
areas of development.
