When someone describes a problem getting a certain hardware setup
to work as desired in FreeBSD, and reports that it works in some
other OS, I would take it to mean that one need not suggest testing
the hardware, since it is already known to work properly in the
other environment.  For someone who happens to be familiar with
whatever other OS was mentioned, it may also serve as an example
of the sort of operation that the poster was attempting to achieve
in FreeBSD.
