Re:In BSD, hardware support is often more graceful

You like it because it doesn't use modules? This is a pretty ignorant statement. Modules are a strength, not a weakness. Without them you need to compile all kinds of unused drivers into the kernel, causing kernel bloat. To get rid of the extra drivers you need to compile a custom kernel. That's how Linux used to operate before they added module capability to the kernel.
