i just wanted to tell my OWN opinion.
This opinion shouldn't start a flame ware ;-)
i just don't see any purpose for these stuff (forums, ...) at least
for now and we shouldn't compare any bsd with linux since linux is
more dedicated for users while i think bsd is more for developers and
system/network administrators an exception is  freebsd which follows a
path like that linux follows.
Sorry it's just my personal opinion.
