  Actually, I've recently found out that this isn't always true. Some 
Linux man pages in sections 2 and 3 seem to be more complete than the 
BSD equivalents, i.e. have examples or documentation of the used data 
structures. Take a look at nanosleep(3), for example.
  But I promise, as soon as I've found an appartment and have moved, I 
will start to change those kind of things when I discover them.
  But I think, generally speaking you are definitely right.
