The @vermaden, @BasementTrix on FreeBSD not being a native PC OS


I don’t monitor this site’s Twitter feed, but I saw a few retweets from people I follow about my recent critique about FreeBSD not being PC-native. I loved these!


You may as well say that #Linux is native to #Finland so it works better there - as well as #BSD is native to #USA so it works better there :)

And Trix Farrar:

Linux is for people that want their PC to run *NIX. FreeBSD is for people that want *NIX to run on their PC.
