I happen to be a Unix fun and especially FreeBSD fun. But I think there should be a difference between a server OS and a desktop. Therefor I don't expect the freebsd developers to develop drivers for every single desktop crap. I'am happy if they focus on server stability and performance.
So, for my laptop it's either Linux, Mac or Windows. Linux has hundreds of distros with their own package management based on binaries. I don't like that sorry. Windows, well I don't need to use 4G of Ram and an expensive core2duo just to be able to boot. Besides Vista is crap os.
So, I choose a macbook. And I can do everything with my Mac, all my system and network administration. I even through an apache & mysql installation just to be able to do some local testing. I use macports which is very equivalent to the FreeBsd ports.

...when you have excluded the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth.
