Six-monthly releases: OpenBSD shows the way

,----[ Quote ]
| De Raadt says that by the time one release 
| takes place, the developers are already six 
| weeks into the next development cycle. "The 
| release is a branch off the main development
| tree. In many other projects, it is a live 
| branch, as in a separate team cuts it off 
| and then keeps making minor tweaks to it to 
| make sure it is a good release (why? that is 
| because the mainline is crap).
| "In OpenBSD, the release branch is a dead 
| branch. The day it split from the trunk it 
| was determined to be good enough for making 
| a real release. Without any changes. That is 
| because the trunk is good stuff."


DIY pfSense firewall system beats others for features, reliability, and security

,----[ Quote ]
| For one, there is a higher degree of 
| reliability. Running on a full computer 
| system makes it infinitely upgradeable. It 
| can be extended to do more than just shuffle 
| packets back and forth. You can turn a 
| simple firewall into a full intrusion 
| detection system. You can analyze and track 
| bandwidth usage. It can be a VPN end point, 
| a Web proxy, DHCP and DNS server, load 
| balancer, handle automatic failover, and 
| provide great diagnostic tools.
| pfSense, a firewall system based on the 
| FreeBSD kernel, can handle all of this and 
| more.

| The FreeNAS developers have announced the

| named Khasadar), a FreeBSD-based Network-
| attached storage (NAS) UNIX-like server
| operating system. FreeNAS includes a full Web
| configuration graphical user interface (GUI)
| and supports the FTP, NFS, CIFS (Samba), AFP,
| rsync and iSCSI protocols and software RAID
| (0,1,5).


LiveUSB OpenBSD project at sourceforge

,----[ Quote ]
| It is really easy to create a USB bootable
| OpenBSD LiveUSB image. With that you can do
| just about anything you want. Don't believe me?
