In BSD, hardware support is often more graceful

Posted by: Anonymous Coward on June 14, 2005 06:31 AM
Open and Net BSD in particular I am very impressed with. If you'll look at their wireless support, or USB, or some of the more "modern" style hardware, it is often more gracefully and robustly supported, stable, etc. Plus, you don't have to build a myriad of modules, because the pre-built kernels work fine out of the box.

I've been using OpenBSD in routers and servers for 5 years, and recently switched to it (from Linux) on my laptop. It's a much better system in my opinion.
