    OMG

    This guy must be crazy. FDISK and Disklabel hellspawn? I dont think so, it is pretty easy to use, even for a newbie like me. FreeBSD isnt even linux, what is he talking about, and using a server OS for a desktop? He would have been much better off with SUSE or Slack or something like that. He doesnt have a clue

    um, you do realise that it was a satirical piece of writing, take a close look at the url and youll see what im talking about.

    But he does raise a point though, bsd is difficult to install compared to Mandrake or SUSE

    Actually, what he said was true in a way, the OpenBSD installer has a really nasty version of fdisk. You can get through it, but if your dual booting other os'es, sometimes it wont format the disk properly.

    Well, it is meant to be a joke, but I have to agree. Although they're both supposed to be UNIX-like operating systems (BSD more so than Linux since it actually was UNIX code at one time), the two operating systems behave completely differently, as I've unfortunately found out in my ill-fated forays at trying to use it. Proficiency in Linux does not guarantee even "newbie" status in BSD, or vice versa.
