    I can't read a manual to figure out how to use a real operating system.

    Why don't you just start writing proprietary software, you're already half way there if you're using it.
    Do you count your CPUs microcode as a binary blob as well? Because you really should. Your BIOS comes to mind as well; as do the various programmable logic chips on your motherboard. You can't escape proprietary software easily, no matter how much you wish you could.

    Because microcode is just a way to implement some ISA, which could just as well be implemented directly in hardware, do you consider hardware itself to be a 'binary blob'?

    It's a toy not real OS. Why to figure out how to use toys while there's Linux?

    You haven't updated your BSD blog (http://aboutthebsds.wordpress.com). I though you'd have some enlightening and revealing information to share before new year for all your fans...

    You can't swap out and replace code in the CPU and logic chips, even RMS acknowledges this, but you can replace the proprietary firmware that's used for radeon video, and anyone who doesn't yet goes on about how they need pure FOSS code is a shill.

    Please, Pawlerson (kraftman, BSDSucksDicks, etc), do post some new stuff; I can't wait for your word of wisdom. You must know that people out there are just waiting to know the truth about the BSD's; please don't deny us your revelational posts...
