Yes, indeed there’s a number of developers who bring MacBooks to conferences[sup](*)[/sup]. Even though most of them probably still use FreeBSD on their desktop at home, that sighting at conferences has probably lead to that anecdotic claim mentioned earlier in this thread.I think i've stumbled across the source of this claim some time ago. If i remember correctly this goes back to some guy supposedly making this observation at a conference and who knows maybe he was even right about it.
[sup](*)[/sup] Unfortunately, FreeBSD’s support for modern laptops / notebooks is somewhat lacking. The next best thing is probably a MacBook, since MacOS has a partial FreeBSD heritage “under the hood”.
