Considering that, the moment someone shows up and says "I'm a Windows
user, but I'm thinking about trying out FreeBSD," you immediately assume
the person doesn't want to learn without bothering to read any further, I
don't think you actually have any way of knowing whether anyone wants to
learn most of the time.

'holy-shit' experience."
