Modern programs

FreeBSD is updated often, both the programs that make it up and the ports software apps which run on it. It's only a matter of getting the latest software from the net and running it. Many operating systems are updated infrequently for sundry reasons: Debian Stable must be tested on 11 architectures and have its bugs squashed before a new version is released and this often takes so long, the software released with it is already out of date. Microsoft's Windows OSes are updated whenever MS gets stirred up enough to do it and while patches and service packs are more or less free (never mind likely to break something), upgrades of the OS must be purchased.
