As the total lamer I am I just managed to lock myself out of my debian box. (don't ask).
Anyway, as I need to re-install anyway I thought maybe I should change to freeBSD instead.

The box will mainly serve as a router/firewall for my home network of 3 computers.

I know have a bunch of questions that I was hoping that some of could answer:

*Generally, would freeBSD be thought of as more secure?
*Is there a fancy packaging system for freeBSD, like rpm or dpkg?
*Is it hard to configure? My thought here is that it doesn't matter how secure the OS could be if I can't configure it.
*Are there any easy and/or good firewalls for freeBSD?

Last but not least, I was hoping on getting some general thoughts and opinions on freeBSD as an OS, pros and cons.
