The excessive "loling" here exemplifies the need for the following
scholium, and because many have taken single sentences out of context

is not on this list, however NetBSD, FreeBSD, Debian and Slackware are

request for BSD support should not be considered in any way novel or
unique to my particular needs as FreeBSD and NetBSD have been the
obvious workhorses that kept free software alive outside of the
impressive effort of Richard Stallman (the other Allman) et al,

"run it in a virtual machine" is as merit-less as "don't reinvent the
