Yes, complaint in mailing list about FreeBSD lack of hardware and new
feature support is "being a troll" or "lame".
We cant complaint to freebsd developers who use emacs and elite tools,
they are able to c0de their own version of freebsd and they no have time
to "window's world feature".

Many of us like FreeBSD style, It's polite, serious, clean but We would
like to install freebsd in they hardware we want or in a modile machine.

for example, for a Dell inspiron, i could boot normally the kernel, I had
to "hack it", I cant run  X windows cuz free86 guys havent realease the
driver, and a Dell insipiron is very old.
Windows XP installed perfect and had all apm functions enable and working

Who's the "elite"?
