Interesting, some of the comments further down the page; specially about the Linux community being welcoming.....and the BSD community espousing the well-worn precept of 'RTFM', and remaining highly insular within the realms of academia. No wonder it's not popular.
I must admit, I didn't find the Ubuntu community particularly welcoming to noobs. Puppy, however.... The enthusiasm is almost palpable. Noob or veteran, no-one looks down on you for asking even apparently stupid questions. They're a great bunch.
From the sound of things, the BSD crowd were even worse than the usual cliques....!! Honestly, fancy judging a potential contributor more on the strength of his/her academic reputation than on the quality of his/her proposal...
