I'll give you a real example. I havea licensed mathematics package
called Maple. It expensive. Ubuntu (Debian) just broke the
installation from one upgrade to another. They take pride in not
keeping backwards compatibility. Then, I used FreeBSD with the Red Hat
emulation software, ad I have it runing.

Another example: documentation (with whole books on the system desgin)
and a community more knowledgeable.

Plus, ports. You don have to wait 6 months like in Debian.

Additionally, you can run Linux software under emulation layer.

BSD license.
