FreeBSD is not a retail OS!.... in short for many reasons f**k retail
computing... like I said dead users don't give a flying f how good
something looks if it kills them!  (Just ask anyone who started smoking
because of how sexy the ad models were before tobacco ads were
outlawed.).... in sort FreeBSD is a mission critical OS meant for
professional use (if you use for desktop use like I do then it is purely
accidental to its primary purpose).
