This piece does a good job at explaining some of the strength of FreeBSD, it's port installation system, and how it compares to Linus in many respects.

I've been running the first release candidate for Freebsd-4.5 for over a week and a half now.... It's been very stable, not a single thing to complain about. I've got the usual software installed: XFree86-4, KDE2, galeon, xmms, all from the ports tree. I've compiled all of my software from the ports tree, and I also run a distributed.net client. All of these tasks, especially compiling large apps such as X Windows or KDE, stress the OS sub-systems. Granted, I'm not serving 100+ hits a second on Apache, and I'm not running a 100+ GB file server either. But I can honestly say that it is the most stable OS I've ever ran and I welcome everyone to at least give it try. It could very well surprise you.

Sounds very impressive. Anyone out there use FreeBSD as their primary desktop?
