No, I really don't. I actually only need the new kernel with atheros
wlan support. That's all, really. But since "they" made the leap
towards fbsd 6.1, which does have support for wlan, I wanted to use
it finally. Even though Kasper explicitly said to use a dedicated
accesspoint, I still want to use m0n0wall for that exact task. But
I don't want to spend extra money for an AP, when I already bought
a minipci card.
Other than that you're absolutely right, there really is no need
for pfSense. It's about 12 times as big as m0n0wall with the same
functionality and an uglier design causing a strain on the cpu.. Yes,
to me this does matter. I like clean layouts, like the m0n0wall one.
PLUS: this is also a way of applying pressure on the development. :D
