I actually rather like BSDs, particularly FreeBSD. The FreeBSD Handbook is one of the best bits of documentation that I've ever seen.

Oh, and welcome to LQ.

BSD's are secure.....possibly more so than Linux - certainly a good O/S & worth the effort of learning the basics - for when Linux finally gets taken over by big businesses....

I keep my hand in with BSD for that very reason.

What on earth is the point of joining a technical forum and, in your first post, saying that something SUCKS? And nothing else! If you had at least said what your experience of BSD was and why it made you so angry, it would have furnished a basis for some kind of conversation.

I do the same, I worry about the take over of Linux also.

But for software (in c) I write were I work, I make sure I run an extensive tests on OpenBSD.

Why, OpenBSD will crash the program if I did something 'bad', I found many issues over the years by testing on OpenBSD.

I'll assume that you're not just trolling. I agree with hazel, that is, there's little point in your first post without a context. If you had a bad first experience with a BSD post a question here. You can also experiment with the BSDs in a virtual machine. There is ample available documentation to get you started.

I agree it is likely. However, I've been chastised for labeling members as trolls so I try to avoid that and give them the benefit of the doubt.
Perhaps the OP may become curious and investigate the BSDs. It's their journey.
