For good measure

I did attempt FreeBSD; it did not boot.

Goddamn it, BSD

I can't help but quit you. I want to admire how BSD works and fits together, but damn it, shit doesn't work. True believers can tell me that I don't know what I'm doing, and perhaps they're right, but I've now installed OpenBSD three times and NetBSD once. NetBSD is okay, but not superior to Linux on my laptop, and not usable on this computer; OpenBSD is unreliable on the laptop and unpleasant to use on this iMac G5. From what I can gather, no BSD is appropriate for my netbook. Quo fucking vadis? I want to try this OS, but I can't justify using it if it is obviously inferior.
