FreeBSDers don't flame :-)

Yes, I think you're right. Most FreeBSD users are used to do things the
'command line way'. FreeBSD has a steep learning curve (actually a steep
configuration curve), but once you get things running (and that isn't
that hard) it's rock steady.

So the advantages aren't necessary won when installing, but more when
using FreeBSD for a while.

To the OP: if you're not willing to learn, Windows is probably best for
you.

My 2ct.
