What's that old joke...

"Netcraft confirms FreeBSD is dying!"

Yet, three of the top 10 most reliable web hosts, according to Netcraft, 
run FreeBSD as of Nov 2017.

People have been saying FreeBSD is dying for ages now.  Yet somehow, all 
these new features keep turning up in new releases and those brilliant 
FreeBSD developers keep delivering the goods time and time again.

Also, consider that we've seen spinoffs from FreeBSD like the robust 
pfSense firewall and the feature-rich FreeNAS storage operating system.

All this angst is much ado about nothing.  There's a place for FreeBSD in 
our world.
