|Subject:||DesktopBSD and similars|
I recently tried DesktopBSD, PC-BSD, and FreeBSD 6.1. Unfortunately none of them fully recognizes my hardware (Asus P5LD2 Deluxe, etc.) and so it is impossible to use them.
Also Knoppix 5 does so, but Slax (a 196 MB cd live) perfectly recognize it (as Fedora 5, Suse 10.1, Mandriva, Ubuntu, etc.).
Moreover, speaking frankly, I would say that install wizard of FreeBSD is deliberately difficult to understand, and not prone to think people (not my case) understand nothing of it.
Is FreeBSD an elitist OS?
