Yes actually, I'm using FreeBSD as well as Linux now, and have dabbled with 
OpenBSD in past, so think it's a shame that it's not FUGs rather than LUG's 
ie. FreeOS User Groups.

Fact is with so much common tools and applications which kernel you happen to 
run is probably more of academic interest to most users.
