[News] FreeBSD 8.0 Received Good Review

Hash: SHA1

First look at FreeBSD 8.0

,----[ Quote ]
| In the past, I've referred to FreeBSD as both 
| stable and powerful and this release confirms 
| that reputation. After spending a week 
| installing, configuring and using the latest 
| version of FreeBSD, I'd like to add that it's 
| a very mature and polished operating system 
| too. On the surface, the system looks complex 
| and arcane, but great lengths have been taken 
| to make each step of each task smooth for the 
| administrator.

| Bachelor Degree in Engineering (Electrical,
| First Class Honours, 1981) from Monash
| University in Australia.
| Over the years he developed with various
| commercial Unix variants such as SysVR2/3,
| Solaris, AIX, HP-UX, OSF/1 and SCO and several
| embedded operatings systems like VxWorks, LynxOS
| and Microwareâs OS9.
| In the open source world he was once a user of
| NetBSD and OpenBSD in addition to FreeBSD.
| Afterwards, he preferred just to use FreeBSD.


FreeBSD 8.0 Review: Enterprise Ready Server Operating System

,----[ Quote ]
| This release improves on the functionality
| of FreeBSD 7.2 and introduces often
| requested new features in jail, SMP-
| optimized scheduler, virtualization, virtual
| network stack, NFS4, and storage subsystem
| improvements. This the most impressive
| FreeBSD releases to date. Kudos to FreeBSD
| team for rolling out stable and feature rich
| enterprise ready FreeBSD 8 operating
| systems.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
