But most of the questions and problems that appear in
Usenet/Web/Email/IRC are very general and the answer is almost the
same for other OS' (BSD), too. (I think of "How do I configure the

So far the user support which claims to be Linux support is also
partly BSD support.

If you can believe Microsoft-payd studies, then it's proven that Linux
does NOT (see heise newsticker, some weeks ago, for the link).
