FreeBSD is not a "UNIX-style" OS, it *is* UNIX.  Of the BSD variety.
You (Nadav) know that but I just wanted to make it clear to the
uninformed reader.

Personally I don't think the learning curve is that steep either.
With Unix I can read _The Unix Programming Environment_ by K & P *
and basically be done with it.  With NT I have to figure out how
to twist their picture of "one person, one computer" into a
working model.

* YES there is continuing education, but once you have the basics
  it's pretty easy.
