No wonder, because GNU/Linux manpages tend to be outdated or
otherwise useless (without examples etc), as compared to OpenBSD
I agree, that HOWTO-like documents are very useful, but having
good manpages is a must. I find myself frequently looking up
forgotten and/or platform-specific details, etc. HOWTO documents
do not replace manpages.
