this is not true. freebsd in particular supports all of the latest
free desktops and also has good support for haskell packages:


the only downside for new users is that freebsd by default does not
use a livecd for installation

ubuntu offers a livecd installation and has a great selection of
haskell packages as well by virtue of its debian roots
