comment Why would someone choose FreeBSD over Linux?
@Tshepang It's possible that this is entirely a personal experience, and it's probably less common among people who have extensive Linux experience before they ever see a BSD. Another explanation that I've come up with is that I learned most of what I know about BSD by reading the official project docs, yet I learned most of what I know about (most) Linux distros by Googling. Gentoo is again the exception (their wiki was an excellent resource when I was exploring Gentoo), which makes me think I understand the reason for certain decisions better on those systems.

comment Why would vim return non-zero exit code if I exit immediately after opening?
Sorry - I'm on my work machine now and it doesn't have this behavior. I'll be sure to check it out once I'm on my home machine again, though.

comment Why would someone choose FreeBSD over Linux?
@Tshepang It's tough for me to put into words, but "integrated" might be a good description. I find that when I guess how something works, I'm right on the BSDs far more often than I am on the Linux distros I've tried (except maybe Gentoo).

comment How do I encrypt git on my server?
Does su - git work? Also, what is the point of encrypting the FS if you want to have it always available if the machine is on? Is it strictly to protect against offline attacks?
