I'm not so sure if this is really such great publicity.  In my
experience, people who do not already know (in some detail) about BSD
are easily turned off by overly aggressive and deragotive remarks
regarding other OS.

It would be easy for anybody to get the impression that _all_ BSD
developers and -users are equally aggressive and insulting, and I for
one would rather not be thrown into that melting pot.

In general, I prefer *BSD to present itself in a friendly, open and
mature matter that emphasizes it's strength, but doesn't insult or
ridicule similar or competing products.
