I have use freebsd since version 4.7 out . So far I’m happy with the box.
I’m rarely doing make world, only if needed .
Many friend of me ask about possibility replace freebsd to something famous like Linux, solaris etc but I don’t
I’m satisfying customer , why I must move to other os when I see no problem with existing one.

Learning and always update your knowledge but no need to “crash” your good stuff.
