FreeBSD suffers from *alot* of other things because of havin gtoo many 
committers :(  As hard-core FreeBSD as I've been over the years, things 
haven't been the same since Jordan left ... to the point that I'm already 
planning on moving over to DragonFlyBSD (fork project of FreeBSD ... 
same base code as what we're currently using [ie. FreeBSD 4.x] but 
with *alot* of fixes for some pretty major problems that still exist 
in the current version of FreeBSD) over the next few months ... they've 
already re-written the VFS system, which we tax heavily, but haven't 
finished the rewrite of the unionfs code (which is how we tax VFS) which 
is in the works ...

Love the OS ... not so haappy with the direction its taken :(
