In terms of numbers, the "average user" for FreeBSD may well be a
Netflix or Cloudflare(*) devop. :-)

If you mean a user with uncomplicated needs, I'd agree with you. In my
case I've got ten machines, with two hardware architectures, some
externally visible so with more paranoid port options than in house
ones. For that poudriere is wonderful.

(*) ISTR they use FBSD.

An amusing coincidence: log2(58) = 5.858 (to 0.0003% accuracy).
