Unhappy /etc and suse v. freebsd


been a Suse user for years.
Just installed FreBSD 5.3 for a try.

Hmmm.

On my system (9.1), I have 2500 files and folders in /etc, where kde and gnome are using almost half of them.

Code:
find /etc -type f|wc -l
     312
FreeBSD5.3-RELEASE/sparc64

Code:
find /etc -type f|wc -l
     2122
Slackware 10.0

This looks normal to me...I think SuSE just has a bit of bloat these days
