"Greener" pastures indeed.
Nope, I like the grass very much on the FreeBSD side of the fence which is why ACPI/suspend/resume, for me, makes it hard to justify running Linux. I already manage a number of FreeBSD boxen and have done for more than a decade now. Wow, didn't realize it was that long!
There is so much cool stuff happening in FreeBSD/PC-BSD land that I am really reluctant to swap my main work environment over to another. If I did, it might be to Arch Linux although I've not checked out that one yet but it does sound somewhat appealing to me.
As far as the original poster's thoughts, I suspect some percentage of PC-BSD questions end up being directed to the FreeBSD forum and that is inevitable given their common base. There seem to be quite a few newbies over there that perhaps should be experiencing PC-BSD as their first OS, anyway.
