I installed FreeBSD on an old laptop of mine and have been enjoying it quite a bit. I wouldn't replace Debian with it on my main computers because its packaging is inferior (IMHO of course) but it is a pretty nice system to play around with and I figured I'd make sure everything I wrote worked with it.
But I don't know after all this. I always saw BSD as being another branch of Free Software. One that, perhaps undeservedly, has never gotten as popular, but certainly was as valid. Moreover, I've become increasingly dissatisfied with the quality of the Linux kernel and have been hoping that something like kFBSD would take off. But now I'm thinking that perhaps it's impossible to work with the BSD community in any kind of constructive way.
