It's to avoid having to run Linux just because application
X has not been ported to FreeBSD...

Linux Kernel != Linux OS != Linux application

Don't get me wrong, I admin Linux for a living. It's doing a great
job there, I just prefer the BSD way of doing things. I run FreeBSD
on my Laptop, and use the emulation to run Java, VMware, OpenOffice,
Acroread... think of it as a trade-off. You loose 5% of pride, but
you get the job done ;)
