Default freebsd looks like a warehouse.

Same as linux, all the software in the universe are put in millions of cd's and you get it like a big software warehouse.


This is why I run a way from Linux, I CAN'T STAND THIS ANY MORE


Openbsd looks to me very simple and clean, I like the philosophy.
Freebsd is like Linux I think, to much in it.



Linux has all the software in the universe (mostly junk) , like the HP printer software that weight more then 100MB in the redhat distro.

I have a feeling and I'm not a freebsd professional , that freebsd is becoming like Linux in some ways, they put inside to much.



PUFFY IS THE KING .

And who on earth is forcing you to make a full install of the given Linux distro.
If you so unhappy about it, do a minimal install of Debian/RedHat/CentOS/Slackware/Arch etc and go on to add only the necessary apps you want.
See, the problem is solved. No need to bash Linux for what you don't understand the concept of minimalism.

This thread is now locked. It has meandered from subject to subject, & its value has been questionable since the very beginning.
