Comment FreeBSD (Score 1) 136

I started using FreeBSD around 1993 and was using it exclusively at home until around 14 years ago. I had been using RH Linux (customer requirement) in developing embedded applications for a while so I put together a Debian box at home to try something different. I was running JReceiver on a FreeBSD where it was intended to run on Linux and was becoming a pain to maintain so I moved it to the Linux box. Over time the BSD boxes saw less use so they were deprecated. Besides my Thinkpad, I now have 3 machines running Debian, one is a general purpose machine and the other two are geographically separated mythTV boxes.
