I agree. These days, I have to depend on my operating systems; I cannot
afford to play around with them for hours, days, or weeks at a time. On
the production system, every minute of downtime is money lost. So I
need something simple and reliable. FreeBSD has proven itself to be in
this category, so I run FreeBSD.
