I haven't tried any of the BSDs since the BCS closed down. From what I've
seen in too many Linux vs BSD flamewars, I always got the impression that
BSD partisans were comparing the most recent release of BSD to a
several-years-old Linux. I've heard the arguments, and I'm not impressed.
As far as I'm concerned, the most significant differences between Linux
and the BSDs are cultural, not technical, and the claims of "superiority"
are some combination of marketing hype and religion.
