According to Greg Lehey's "The Complete FreeBSD," a great deal of BSD being less well-known than Linux was due to the BSD's legal battles with AT&T. Therefore, they lagged behind for awhile. The BSD's most certainly seem to be getting more and more popular and FreeBSD is becoming easier to use as a desktop. (As is Net, actually) (The "popular" part is totally subjective, and I'm almost certainly prejudiced as I spend too much time on BSD specific forums, mailing lists, etc. Sometimes, since my free time is pretty much spent with Linux and the BSD's it's a shock to go back to work and have to support the MS machines.) - -- Scott Robbins PGP keyID EB3467D6 ( 1B48 077D 66F6 9DB0 FDC2 A409 FA54 EB34 67D6 ) gpg --keyserver pgp.mit.edu --recv-keys EB3467D6 Spike: Nasty sort of fellow. Lucky for you blighters I was here, eh? Giles: Yes. Thank you. Although your heroism is slightly muted by the fact that you were helping Adam to start a war that would kill us all. Xander: You probably just saved us so we wouldn't stake you right here. Spike: Well, yeah.
