And that's why I disagree for turning this kind of feature on by default.
I "feel" when I'm under an Ubuntu (or other desktop-centric distro)
shell because of the delay after trying to execute, for examble, a
mis-typed command. Sometimes it takes so much time to respond that I
think the command was good, and go drink a coffee. Only to find out
that no, it was just bloatware running. FreeBSD is so responsive as it
is. I posted "time" results in another thread, and an Ubuntu Server
took half a second to respond "command not found" at the first try,
and it was a multi-GHz multi-core class CPU with multi-GB of RAM and
multi-hard drive on a RAID. A not so old laptop I have takes ages to
lookup that database ! Wouldn't PC-BSD be a better place for that ?
