FreeBSD â the unknown Giant

,----[ Quote ]
| FreeBSD is a free, open-source and UNIX-like 
| operating system. Though relatively unknown, 
| itâs a performing and powerful work-horse, 
| capable of coping with massive work-loads 
| whilest remaining fast, ultra-stable and rock-
| solid. Blogging about FreeBSD and operating 
| systems based on this versatile, safe and 
| secure OS, I want to generate more interest in 
| FreeBSD and its dependants. If you need a 
| reliable, rock-solid and performing system for 
| either your desktop or servers, consider 
| FreeBSD!

FreeBSD end-of-year fund raising drive (update)

,----[ Quote ]
| FreeBSD is free; it can be downloaded, used and
| adapted without paying any fees, unlike other
| major operating systems. This is why the
| FreeBSD Foundation needs donations to be able
| to fund new projects and conferences.


My experience with FreeBsd 8 (comes free with rants and review)

,----[ Quote ]
| I would like to give FreeBSD 8 two thumbs up.
| It really lives up to its name in terms of
| stability and sleekness.


Install a BSD-variant with the help of PC-BSD

,----[ Quote ]
| Iâm very glad to see that someone has
| created a BSD variant that is easy enough
| for the masses to install. PC-BSD allows
| anyone to give one of the most solid,
| reliable, and secure operating system
| available a try.


Why the BSDs get no love

,----[ Quote ]
| So to the BSD community I beg you, make
| modern your image. Stop playing in your
| basement laboratory and show the rest of the
| world how powerful you really are. Just make
| sure when the masses of the world see you
| they donât think, âOh, how outdated is that?â
| Gain the love you deserve, BSD.


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."
