I thought I would post this as something of a warning.  Using
FreeBSD as a primary, non-dual-boot OS means sacrificing.  Here is a
partial list of sacrifices, as compared to Microsoft Windows XP:

* webcam ball
* flatbed scanner
* color printer
* digital cameras
* firewire devices
* several USB 1 and 2 devices
* IM software features such as voice and video chat
* websites that use ActiveX (Windows) controls
* MP3 devices

Any major sacrifices I've forgotten?  ":-\
