Just a note - the Wiki page
(https://wiki.alpinelinux.org/wiki/Alpine_newbie_apk_packages) on
"Alpine newbie apk packages" refers to FreeBSD in a table of "other
Linux" at the bottom. FreeBSD is emphatically not Linux, despite that
being a useful OS for package management comparison. I would suggest
changing to "other Linux/UNIX" or "other *nix" or similar, as the
current wording is misleading and may confuse readers.
