It certainly seems as if you brought a lot of pre-conceived ideas to
the desk, which may have been good in some other context, but
simply are not the same ideas that *BSD has its roots in.

The docs are a complete and highly distilled overview of the entire
OS; I don't think that it was intended as a simple "how to" type
affair.  I'm not saying that you didn't read them, perhaps in near
entirety, but from this end it *sounds* as if you expected automagic
config wizards and eye-candy help menus from an OS that simply
has a different philosophy.
