Desktop FreeBSD won't improve unless people are using it
Shamelessly, I posted my previous post, FreeBSD on a Thinkpad Extreme G2 on /r/bsd Reddit.
The result, some 24 hours later, is 100 visitors. Out of that 100, 57 are using a desktop. Out of that 57, only 2 used FreeBSD—2%. No other BSDs are recorded.
People who are into BSD don’t use BSD. This seems to be a reason for lacking hardware support. If no one uses FreeBSD, no one will encounter those problems. If no one encounters them, no one will fix them.
