Simply put... software versions. I got tired of messing with compiling Python from source and all of that shit. I feel like FreeBSD is also faster when doing updates etc.
I used CentOS as my main OS for servers for several years and it pains me to say, but I love FreeBSD and I wish I made the switch a while back. I don't hate CentOS, but it's not going to be the OS that I choose when deploying stuff (unless I don't have a choice or I can't choose FreeBSD).
PS: Yes, this could've just been a tweet. I don't care though. 😋
until next time
