Since then, nearly every #Linux distro has gotten way easier to install and I haven't kept track of #BSD installation processes (but for example, #ArchLinux and #NetBSD were both more difficult than average, while #Gentoo is easy, but very long).
@lnxw48a1@bthall there's nothing hard about installing BSDs. Just answer the questions.
The only tricky part would be partitioning and dealing with pre-existing data; I highly suggest having an entire drive dedicated to whatever OS you are installing. If this isn't possible, you could always play in a virtual machine.
@kai If you're used to installing #Ubuntu or #LinuxMint, the #BSD installers are very likely to be harder for you relative to Ubu/Mint, even in a VM. Not impossible, by any means, but not as simple and easy as what you're used to.
@lnxw48a1 @bthall @kai Funny fact: The only time I tried to install OpenBSD, it crashed. It was hardware-specific, and Theo told me later that a workaround existed: I only needed to have a floppy inserted while installing. By that time I already decided that BSD was too fickle and the rest is history.
