Indeed! Since one of the domains that is important to me is
pro-audio, I'm mainly an Apple and Linux user. FreeBSD is an alternative
and maybe better in some domains, hence I take a
look at FreeBSD from time to time, at the moment I'm just owning
https://nomadbsd.org/ on an USB stick.

I strongly recommend to go without USB3, if this should workaround the
issue. In my experiences USB3 rarely gains much, if anything at all.

Compiling a kernel is less effort than installing and getting used to
another operating system. And as already mentioned, when migrating to
another operating system, pleased habits easily could result in new

1. If possible don't migrate to Linux.

2. If there should be the need to migrate to Linux, don't use an
   unusual Linux, just because it's closer to FreeBSD's init.
