Yeah? Well, two things:

1) AFAIK, only Debian has a base system that is truly a minimal install.
I suppose some other distros do this now too. But a Red Hat install, for
instance, is like the circus coming to town -- hardly a "base."

And that is why I deploy servers with Debian and Jail env. with RedHat, I make the best of both worlds users want boats of programs, I want *SECURE*. I still have to be careful of userland root 'sploits and such (we all do though) but it gives a very comfortable compromise.

That said, both FreeBSD and Debian share much common philosophy. I guess
that's why I like and use both!
