When you start to learn FreeBSD, it seems it's a little harder than Linux (just a little may I say!), but it isn't. For me it wasn't because after DOS/Windows my 1st experience with Libre, unix-like (or whatever they want to call it these days) operating systems was FreeBSD. You have to push a little and read through documentation. After that, you'll recognise it's far more easier than Linux. Beside that it makes more sense. You'll discover there's rationale behind the design and structure of FreeBSD operating system. There's no such element in GNU/Linux environment, only rationalisations.I really want to use FreeBSD as a desktop OS it's not because LINUX can't fulfill my needs, it's because I find FreeBSD more free and open than LINUX and I do keep handbook PDF handy in my phone

That's correct, but only up to a point. You're fine untilI never knew why it could be dead, if we can still get it everywhere online...

Why would you put first 2 and last 2 in the same sentence?GhostBSD; NomadBSD; OpenBSD; NetBSD
It didn't, "desktop" linux is still isn't a thing, and "enterprise" interest in linux where all the "cool stuff" came from is irrelevant to ubuntu's attempts at desktop.Folks forget how, before Ubuntu, Linux support was scarce, but after it helped popularize Linux
Did you mean FuryBSD? As far as I can tell NomadBSD is still live. But perhaps I'm missing something?and though I never used Nomad, I'm sorry to see it go

Thanks for quoting Eisenhower properly. Quoting Eisenhower's full statement without censoring final words are very rare. There's a tendency among the many to censor the last part i.e. "scientific-technological elite". I wonder why. No I don't!Quoting Eisenhower again: "[...] Yet, in holding scientific research and discovery in respect, as we should, we must also be alert to the equal and opposite danger that public policy could itself become the captive of a scientific-technological elite.
