I don't think these kinds of _very_ general questions are really
helpful and there
are a lot of them. I guess, because there are no sales representatives giving
people advice about FreeBSD, people feel more confident when they get some
advice from a mailing list about what sought of hardware people have used to
successfully do some task or other. Especially, when this involves buying
something expensive.

But in general, why are you using/ not using operating system 'x' is not a good
question because there are so many variables and you can't compare the
results in any really conclusive way.

The best thing is to just try it, and anyway, *with FreeBSD the software itself
will not cost you any money*. Maybe you will be surprised, maybe you won't be.
I mean there is no single specific task that general purpose OSs like FreeBSD
are designed for.

I think, it's fair to say that the results will be somewhat unpredictable, maybe
in a positive way, maybe not.
