I have a question for my readers who use a Linux-based OS. This question is intended not only to satisfy my own curiosity and possibly provide grist for a future SOB entry — but also to get people to think about their own answers. Hopefully, I’ll get a lot of answers here. Even if I don’t, though, I’d consider the act of asking the question worthwhile if people honestly answer the question to themselves, no matter what the answer is. Sometimes, we learn something from examining our own choices — even if it’s just that we made the right choice for the wrong reasons.
Without further ado, the question:
Why do you use a Linux distribution instead of a BSD Unix system?
Feel free to answer in comments or via the contact page link in the right-hand column of this Website.
I promise I will not engage people in unwanted debate in response to answers in comments, and I may delete comments that stray too far off-topic or attack people for their answers.
