The simple answer is that I had heard of Linux before BSD.

Same for me. I have a slot open on one of my drives for BSD. I even downloaded FreeBSD the other day. Eventually, I'll give it a shot. :)

I like BSD more. If they had a BSD.com I would probably be there instead. Hard truth but still. Anyways its just opinion and I prefer the BSD license to almost everything else.

I was actually a FreeBSD user for years before switching over to Linux. It was my first non-M$ experience (on a 486DX!).

My primary reason for switching at the time was hardware support was better in Linux on newer boxes. I also got tired of having compilation problems getting stuff that was meant for Linux to run on BSD. It seemed like the Linux kids always had the shinier toys, and I wanted to play with them too! :lol:

At this point, I'm a Linux sysadmin, so Linux pays my bills, which is enough reason for me. ;)

I choose Linux for my desktops.

I choose FreeBSD for my servers.

I know it is sort of wrong. Please don't flame me lol.
