The question "Why are you using FreeBSD ?" was a very good one , but , in
my opinion , other side "Why are you not using FreeBSD?" would be
appropriate , because in engineering , everything for any subject is

- Advantages
- Disadvantages

When "Disadvantages" is NOT evaluated sufficiently well , the results
mostly will be unpredictable .

Instead of corrupting the original thread , I wanted to help to cover the
other side in parallel to the
original question .

If you think , my response is unconscious , here is the my subscription
