    They say that if you play a Windows Install CD backwords, you hear satanic messages. That's nothing; play it forward and it installs Windows.

    Hehe... a recursive avatar... Gosh I'm tempted to change my avatar now, don't know what it should be, any suggestions? I was thinking I could use my AIM one. Hm!

    And yes, well, it depends on how much you think your avatar is a reflection of yourself, really. Some might tell you mine is quite fitting hehe.

    Disguised, I couldn't agree more. But you know you just set this thread up for anti-american rants. Here we go...

    Why did you switch sides any way? Ports?
    If I just wanted ports I'd use Gentoo. BSD's just seem more professional than Linux is. I had all kinds of troubles with getting Linux stuff working how it was supposed to, but it's been nothing but smooth sailing in FreeBSD. I hate distros too. FreeBSD has one unified very stable, very reliable kernel tree.

    I can run all my Linux and I can use UnixWare programs natively within FreeBSD as well. The ports are awesome and put the icing on the cake.

    Oh, and I like the "unix" feel of FreeBSD a lot more than Linux's "copy-cat unix" feel.

    Linux will rise and destroy M$. Two weeks later FreeBSD will then take Linux over.
    That sums it up right there, bull$hit...

    Atleast Ports is a reason, ill even take the unified bit.

    Bah! I've been discovered.
    The word rap as it applies to music is the result of a peculiar phonological rule which has stripped the word of its initial voiceless velar stop.
