I'm sorry, but this lurker feels the need to speak.

While I may not be well versed in *bsd, if Debian is
working for you, great... use it!

If you have a direct complaint regarding the
documentation... PR it.  If it's accepted, all the
better for everyone!  If it is not accepted, either
persevere, or give up.  Endless commentary will serve
nothing (or you are a somewhat successful troll...).
