I dunno... I gotta disagree.  I've been with FreeBSD for 5 years now
and this is the first time I've ever found it not supporting some

I had eventually come to the conclusion that FreeBSD seems to support
EVERYTHING under the sun, and that people who thought otherwise were
just going on outdated info.

Maybe I've just never been bleeding-edge before.  :-)
