Inability of FreeBSD is not coming from inability of developers of it . It
is coming from some person(s) trying to make the World as being
his/her/their slaves by restricting other companies/persons from announcing
their hardware specifications due to their ( for me assumed ) dependencies .

Instead of being a slave to such entities , I prefer to lay down not a few
meters more cables , but as much as needed length of cables and use spaces
as much as needed .  Instead of obeying to their trap to people I prefer to
use FreeBSD or Linux to rescue myself from their traps to make free myself .

People prefer to follow the foot steps of such monopolist entities is a
choice of themselves . They know what to do themselves . Me , I do not
follow such foot steps , and , also I never say any one to obey to my
advises against such entities .

I am expressing my opinions to a very good person trying to use FreeBSD as
much as possible for his works . I respect his efforts , and I always wish
to be able to support such efforts up to the point where I can be helpful .
