FreeBSD for Linux Users
"Most introductory Unix courses start with the differences between SysV and BSD. Students, unimpressed by this fascinating bit of theoretical trivia, tend to jot down a few notes dutifully, and then wait patiently for the hands-on portion of the class. Within the hour, though, someone will make a panicked discovery and shout out, "Where are my runlevels?" There's an inevitable and incredulous follow-up of "What do you mean there aren't any runlevels?" and "Where'd all my startup scripts go?"
Herein lies one of the tangible design differences between a SysV system such as Linux and a BSD system."
