Ok, after what was posted here last April, and other times. How can as a reader of this site
believe this is be true. Is this just away to get money from your readers?

Since last April, I have stop reading this site. Just visited for the first time since May. This is site is almost like reading a ZDavis's web site. Because of sites like this one, what FreeBSD's users have posted on various news groups, and the FreeBSD's pushers that I have met, I have stop installing FreeBSD at my company. We had many file servers (Samba, and Netatalk), one Web Server, and few other servers running FreeBSD. Now I have moved them over to another OS. I was very happy with the OS.

But when the pushers/users/supporters of this OS act like jerks, and SS (neo-nazi) or do not care about Freedom, or how other's feelings about various subjects, that is when I stop using the product, any product.

Now that we have switch over to the other OS. I have found that it provides the same performance, with better security. So, in a way all worked out for the better.
