I'm on Ubuntu 16.04 and have been using this OS for general use since it's less taxing on my old laptop (and a paid program I use is free here).

Is it worth it to update to 18.04 right now?

If things work for you then don't upgrade. 16.04 is LTS - you'll get updates for another 3 years. Make sure you update regularly.

Openrc does the job as well as systemd (even supported unit files before systemd did). I'd reserve comments on systemd for now.

The only problem i have with desktop bsd is that I can't watch netflix or run electron-based applications on it. I wrote this : 8 Months with TrueOS. If you have a thinkpad and you don't mind 4 hours of battery life, TrueOS Desktop is great.

My little startup's infra structure runs on FreeBSD 11 and yes, it is indeed straightforward with zero fiddling. I used to run linux servers before, and I seriously feel like I am doing less work with FreeBSD machines.

I have use thinkpad but what really putting me off about Linux is its fingerprint scanner support.

In windows I could just 'accidentally' swiped a bit on the scanner and it recognized flawlessly.
With Linux however, it takes extreme surgical precision to even make it work, like once. NASA or something could have hired me if I can make the scanner work 3 times in row.

If BSD can play nice with FP scanner I would really have reason to switch away from Linux.

Nah. It is probably about the same on BSD.

More like most are struggling to stay afloat in current state of economy the last few years.

There are still groups. Strength in Linux community is in diversity.

Linux community is always here in Malaysia. I use Linux everyday, working with Linux terminals 8 hours a day.
