Good question. No longer can I say "to impres chicks".
I think Linux on the desktop is better than FreeBSD. I also want to be able
to run VMWare, which won't work on FreeBSD. It works on kernel modifications.
The bit I've run of it so far surprises me. /etc is a total mess, and I'm
sick of hearing about free vs Free vs Not-Free. I'm less interested in
intellectually pure software than I am in software that works; FreeBSD imho
placed a higher emphasis on working than what type of license is employed.
Btw, I switched to Ubuntu. Why? X works out of the box.
Thanks for the tips.
