This question is a sequel or a parallel question to my previous one: Unity problems & Searching for a good WM
I am wondering whether my personal assumptions that FreeBSD is indeed more stable and more tightly controlled, less chaotic, more organized than Linux is actually true. (I don't want to cause a debate, only if its a healthy one)
I'm a front-end developer wanting a STABLE, COHERENT and mature environment working mostly with:
- fancy editors (IDEs) (aptana?)
- other local dev tools such as a webserver, a DB, a deployment tool and so on..
The thing is I am mostly using *nix in order to experiment/learn about stuff that I might use in a professional level such as the deployment of Versioning systems, the customization of web servers and so on... Would using FreeBSD for all that limit me, in the sense that it doesn't enjoy the popularity of Linux/Ubuntu therefore there might be less packages (ports?) available, or the versions of these apps would be less cutting-edge than the Linux ones?
