Thumbs down FreeBSD updates ... or lack of them

One thing that is pretty shitty about FreeBSD is its updates ... or lack of them, we have a working 'infrastructure' for patches that is currently used for security patches, the freebsd-update utility, but other important patches sych as these [1] will not be in *RELEASE* and in 'production ready' system until next 'big' RELEASE (8.3-RELEASE) which will propably happen after a year ... and that sucks a little

Linux is not UNIX! Face it! It is not an insult. It is fact: GNU is a recursive acronym for “GNU's Not UNIX”.

Yes, that's a pity. Using FreeBSD on servers becomes more a pain than a pleasure. Would be nice to get a real usable binary infrastructure for certain environments.
