You would think since it was the SERVER forum, at least the experienced users would agree with me but that wasn't the case with most of them. I know this is a symptom of Micro$oft taking over more and more of the server market.

It's refreshing to come here and still see people that know what they are doing and that want to do things the correct way. once they port VMware to BSD, I'm outta the linux space for good. Sadly, I am seeing the dumbing down of Linux as it becomes more popular on the desktop. What do you guys think?

Sorry for being a little bit more direct, but this is elitist, ideological rubbish! If this is the dominating opinion within the xBSD-Community I didn't have to wonder any more, why a lot of people think about it as some kind of a sect.

You want more people to use BSD? Forget about!

Or, if you want to take it the other way round - if you want xBSD to prevail as an elitist OS just for the "enlightened" followers of the only (self-)righteous way, then carry on this way. And be sure - M$ & Co. will laugh at you while you remain in your "splendid isolation" with your noses held high!

Again - sorry for my harsh words - but such an arrogant swagger is really annoying.
