i am finally back in freebsd land, and it feels good.

after my good experiences with freebsd (especially the mailing lists),
i figured, it would be unwise to not give the other bsd systems a look.

so, i went off and landed in netbsd land, and golly, it was a good
experience, the community is quite friendly and the system feels quite
zippy, but after using it a while, i felt uncomfortable, don't know
what exactly, but, it just didn't feel like home.

i then moved over (back) to openbsd land, and golly, are they still
grumpy out there! but their system has been improved to a very high
degree, much better than what i tried out a year back, but again, it
just didn't feel quite like home.

so i came back to freebsd, and all seems well.
the system is well engineered, and takes into consideration users needs
from a very pragmatic perspective, and the best part is the fact that
it's almost a fully non-gnu licensed system. :)

so, thanks to the freebsd team and it's user community, for giving me
a reason to continue with unix (yeah, i was contemplating windows).
