Incorrect conclusion. The issues of live detection of Amazon EBS volumes
(without reboot), or the lack of native docker, or the lack of advanced
Zabbix monitoring are in no way related to ease of use or real security.

And there is nothing wrong with "a system that just works" because
when it comes to industrial use, you need scalability and as little
manual labour as possible, not a gem you polish as a hobby.

PS I'm aware that Colin Percival is working on EBS volumes hotplug, new
AMIs for different architectures and other virtualization issues, and I
even support him a little on Patreon. Probably this is just due to
lack of financial and human resources that FreeBSD being technologically
brilliant now lacks that and that and that...
