I just finished a fresh install of Windows 10. If you take the time
involved in installing a basic MS Windows system vs. a basic FreeBSD
system, Windows will usually win. A big plus is that Windows actually
can get a wireless system up and running by itself, sans perhaps
supplying the password. Does FreeBSD even support using the WPS Button
on the Wi-Fi Router? Plus, you then have to install a GUI. Now, if you
want to compare a FreeBSD system sans GUI, you have to compare it
against a MS Server, not the regular Windows version design for home or
office users.

This is not about "hand-holding"; it is about bring the OS into the
modern age. My machine is supposed to be my slave, not the other way

Thanks for your comment anyway.
