    Great server, but if you are looking for desktop linux look at Elementary OS or Deepin Linux.

    Vista a good desktop OS, yeah good one. Haven't used Windows 7 yet, but if it sucks anything like Vista then it will be worth avoiding.

    This is an excellent server operating system, but one of the worst desktop operating systems ever created. FreeBSD needs to stop trying to be everything for everyone and focus solely on being a server operating system since that is the only thing it is good at. Mac OS X is the only decent desktop Unix OS and even that is not a very good one compared to Windows 7 and Vista.

    If you don't know what this is or what its for don't give FreeBSD a bad review, it is for advanced computer users wanting something stable, easy to maintain (once setup), something free, and most important to some is that its not Windows. 5 to undo your 1.
