Re: Who uses FreeBSD in preference to Linux and why?
It is more than a little irritating that the BSDs have successfully used ifconfig for configuring every type of interface for years, whilst Linux distributions use a variety of different commands.
Have an extra upvote for that. It is admittedly a while back but I remember helping a Linux user (I think the system was Fedora) setup their wifi which the GUI was failing to do. Turned out that the GUI was simply wrapping round the BSD setup… which obviously didn't work on a system with different paths, etc.
