Can you make the OP editable like in Loonix thread? Since you’re a mod.

If you’re gonna do it do it live on stage, or don’t do it at all.

How all of us feel like when we are working on our BSD Projects with the other OS running and terminals open and shit

My take on the BSD derivatives i use…

  • FreeBSD: general minimalist server. e.g., BIND nameserver, smtp relay, etc. being “not linux” you can feel somewhat less worried about the latest mass-distributed linux 0-day affecting you. its a bit less of a target for skript-kiddies.
  • FreeNAS: zfs file server, home user box to run multiple jails, VMs if you throw enough hardware at it. Also good as a poor-man’s NAS/SAN for a vSphere lab environment. i also use an instance as an “always on” tftp server for centralised storage (and scheduled backup) of CISCO configs
  • pfsense: dedicated firewall box. ideal as VM lab environment or cheap high-throughput firewall on real hardware. Or cheap way to do inter-vlan routing if you don’t have a layer 3 switch handy.

Linux doesn’t get viruses because it’s more obscure than windows

So I’ll be more obscure than linux

A new Section for something nerdy is always welcome!

I never used BSD, but now I am very curious. I don’t agree with their licensing, but at least it’s open-source.

What are the main differences between Linux and BSD I should be aware?

Apart that BSDs are kernel + userland in one package.
