OS to replace FreeBSD

Hi folks,

IMO this is not the place to discuss other OS alternatives in place of
FreeBSD/*BSD. Not that I have anything against any other OS, but there
are other places (mailing lists and/or forums mainly related to those
other OSes) which are more suitable to discuss that. Jerry, that does
not mean in anyway that you are invited to "shut-up" or
"just-to-fuck-off", I believe it has been explained by more than one
person that this is not the attitude of this community.

Moving forward, following the advice from Tomasz [1], I want to buy a
HW on which we can investigate the problem and work on a solution (if
possible/if any). Not just that, I want to volunteer to do the work if
the fix will require some code changes (possibly in addition to the
patches attached already to that PR), but for that I may need guidance
and mentor-ship - Tomasz, is it possible that you can help in that
respect ?

Jerry, from what I've read in [2], the issue is related to 'C610/X99
series chipset' from 'Intel Corporation'. One of the attachments [3],
specifically referred to 'Dell XPS 8930'. Is that the same machine on
which you are having problems ?

Looking forward to your reply
