"I've been meaning to delve into the free BSDs for awhile now. After the very first Linux article I wrote, I received a couple of e-mails from BSD pundits. They were very polite and offered to help me get started using BSD. One even offered to mail me a FreeBSD CD-ROM at no charge!"

"Obviously these guys knew how to advocate! I am a very vocal Linux supporter, yet these folks put the idea into my head that I should at least give BSD a shot. They already taught me a couple new ways to advocate Linux, why not see what else I could learn?..."

"I also would like to evaluate some of the technical differences between the two. What does BSD do that Linux doesn't but should do? How does having a centralized design process affect the operating system? How easy is it for a long time Linux user to transition over to BSD? Is there any unique software that Linux isn't using yet?"
