I'm kind of a returning user! I was maintaining a test-bed at my last 
workplace and had free reign on the test machines, so I installed 
FreeBSD (4.7?) to try, even rolled my own kernel. I've been a Linux user 
for years now, but getting fed up with a) poor documentation b) 
disparity between distributions (which I always think is akin to the 
infighting of socialist factions in Spain in the 70s) c) smart arses and 
lack of answers on forums.

I like the structure of BSD, the approach and the fact that if I ask a 
question, I know that I'll get a response that helps.

So where have you been?

Are you a new user?  If so, what inticed you to try FreeBSD?

Did you just stumble across the list?  If so, where (and where did you
look before)?

Strange questions, perhaps, but any new insights will not go amiss.
