Not when it comes to hardware and third party support. Just look at the amount of Linux based mobile and server deployments. Heck. Even desktop support is better!

>>52419335
Runs Linux binaries native
ZFS native
Dtrace native
Jails
Packages or source, mix n match
Organized

Why not? Come to the deep end!

I would say BSD is more mature and stable. Depending on what you are planing to do, BSD can be a good choice for a serious Server.
I know that BSD is very popular for it's networking capabilities. If you need an OS for a router, BSD would be very nice. Also I think the main file system (can't remember the Name) is more popular than most linux file systems.

The main problem of BSD is that it lacks many popular packages or the implementation is behind, compared to linux. It's a very conservative system and wouldn't be a good choice for a multimedia or even gaming device.

You can watch them, no problem. Mkv's, mp4's, whatever ya got.

That said, stop watching anime and do something useful for once.

It's certainly doable but I wouldn't expect much OpenGL support and stuff. Hell I'm not even sure if you can install mpv on it and if you can it will probably have a bad case of tearing.
