I would say for starters the lack of commercial software support for
FreeBSD. Personally, I'm a gamer. I've got too much invested currently in
software to just switch my desktop to FreeBSD totally. Once there is a
stable Windows emulation that will allow for my software to run on XFree,
I'd probably switch in a heartbeat.
