This is the thing I noticed most when I installed FreeBSD. Almost
none of the software is configured for you during installation -- not
even sendmail, which is dumped on you by default.
I installed the exim port, but it didn't remove sendmail, so the install
didn't work. Not very helpful. I don't think I've booted it up since.
Too happy with debian gnu/linux.
