I never saw this post?

Not a lot of difference, mostly philosophy.

Installation is straight forward for both, it's better to "just do it"
and if you have any problems, just post.

You should understand how the package manager and/or ports works.
Read a little and you will have no problem.

FreeBSD or OpenBSD which is it's native platform.

not of much help... sorry :eek:
