"Over the weekend - I installed OpenBSD. And then I installed FreeBSD. And then I quickly realized why the BSDs are getting no love. For some odd reason the BSDs refuse to join the rest of the modern world. Instead they have decided they (the BSD communities) are going to rebel and remain in the 90s with the text-based installation and their cryptic install instructions. But then the BSD communities complains that they get no love…no press…no user-base.

More than likely, those are the users that have been running BSD since their days in their high-school computer club."
