that's the most narrow minded post i've seen here since i'm on this  
As if the only work that can be considered real work is the work you  

The reason why I CAN'T do any serious work on FreeBSD is because it  
the NVidia drivers (i'm in the film/commercial industry).
I've tried to maintain a FreeBSD server among all the linux workstations
but gave up because it's too much trouble, just for one OS...

I've had a chat with some developers for the software I use in the past
about what they thought about supporting FreeBSD (Autodesk discreet).
And all they could say is it'll never be supported because of the lack  
of drivers.

So.. if I need to do actual work, I can use anything BUT FreeBSD...
