I was converted to FreeBSD from Slackware. If you want to go Linux and 
maintain the "freedom of configuration" you have with FreeBSD (ie, just

that's holy war territory now, so I'll leave you with this: I switched 
to FreeBSD from Slackware because of the ports/package system. They make 
software installation so easy a Microsoft user could do it if they pay
