"I think a Linux flavor is a better choice than a FreeBSD flavor. "
I beg your pardon, tye!
I strongly believe you're mistaken. :)

Hey. I'm not completely useless. I can be used as a bad example.

    Why?
      Couple of reasons, I guess.

      1) a personal matter of choice.
      2) They're called UNIX man pages. So of those 2 mentioned, FreeBSD would be the closest match.

        The overarching value proposition is to make links DWIM, untested, to the maximum extent possible. That means, in general, linking to the largest vocabulary available, at least by default.

        The only potential problem comes in when functions have conflicting semantics. In that case, the user should specify which vocabulary she intends, explicitly.
