Comment Re:Fucking hogwash! PC-BSD is easy to install. (Score 1) 136

I can only speak for NetBSD, which these days I install by unpacking tarballs, but yes, the installer is pretty much like that. Granted, you'll have to arrow-up to 'yes' when it asks you the 'last chance to back out' question, and again before it overwrites the master boot record. I'm rather happy it's that way.

Today, Linux still wins out over BSD because it's easier.

Was it very easy to install, and very easy to use in 1994?

I don't see how it perhaps being difficult 20 years ago supports your claim that it would still be difficult today.
Are you trying to make a point here or are you just "arguing" for the sake of it?

What? This isn't true. Didn't you *just* imply that you didn't use the BSDs in any significant ways? Has it occured to you that you're not qualified to make a proper comparison, as a consequence of knowing only one of the two things you're attempting to compare?

BSD fans will tell you that this is a feature

And hence this is complete bullshit because the premise is wrong.

and then five minutes later bitch about something they don't have because BSD is less popular

And then ten minutes later enjoy the stuff they do have, because it is solid, well-designed and well-documented, rather than random pieces of junk thrown together in an unstructured mess and held together by hacks.
