I'd be interested to know what that is (that people prefer to compile
from source). I can't see the advantage myself, especially for large packages
like X and libc.

I spent quite a while today talking to a BSD fan I know about the
relative merits of BSD and Linux :-) I need to do some benchmarks to
get a good comparison. Sounds like FreeBSD 4.0 will have some nice
performance enhancements too.
