Many believe FreeBSD is Unix (and many would say that it really is, in 
all respects but its name, however that isn't the issue here). Moreover, 
I've got the impression lots of people truly believe Linux is just 
another name for Unix. And I do know for a fact that there are people 
who even believe Unix is another name for Linux.

With such ideas, I guess it's easy to assume FreeBSD is just another 
Linux distro. Isn't it time we try to correct this? I try to do my part 
in that respect, by explaining to anyone who says, "Oh, you're running 
Linux?" that there is a difference. And that the difference matters. It 
may not matter to them. But it does matter to me. And I think it matters 
to most FreeBSD users. And I also believe it actually matters to Linux 
users, at least the more serious ones.
