But after all the setup it feels like linux. FreeBSD 9 is no better than Debian stable or RHEL6.x series. Sometimes all the setup you do are just too much and pretty useless. For making the web Flash files to work, you 'll have to do a part of an old Fedora installation.I did setup FreeBSD 9.0 last year and eventually removed it and moved to Arch Linux for a bit until I finally settled at Debian Testing.
pkgng could bring FreeBSD back into the game, but it all depends on how reliable it is.
