If you read through there you will find exactly what you are saying freebsd guys do, but its the linux fanboys doing it.
Mr.kraftman can be seen http://www.phoronix.com/forums/showpost.php?p=125882&postcount=44 crying that one reason the benchmarks are not fair is because the nvidia drivers are not the same versions(lol).
Others are crying that slackware,gentoo etc were not used over ubuntu, even more people crying "what GCC flags were used!" "omg the file system used is not the best".
As you can see freebsd and linux fanboys, as do all fanboys are the same and just as annoying. As for the commenter above, you are correct about freebsds hardware support, it is not even close to linux. I do have modern hardware and I have a perfectly working desktop without any trouble. I have only had a problem with some hardware on some newer labtops.
But again, linux hardware supports is impressive.
