It doesn’t seem as streamlined as Jails, but it’s certainly a viable alternative. I’ll have to work with it a bit more :slight_smile:

Why BSD?

You want an actual UNIX that does things the UNIX WAY ™

You want a license that isn’t viral, and is actually in the spirit of “do whatever you want with this, just credit us!”

History behind the systems should be general knowledge among professionals and enthusiasts, since when you get to learn why stuff works and is built in a certain way, you really understand the genius behind it all.

One thing that seems to be a minus is that so few people use it thus so few review the code. Even though it is open, no one is watching

Which is good that we have a BSD section, more eyes…kinda

Real talk. I don’t look at the sauce. I only like FOSS cause of the mostly free stuff you can get, without coming off as a pirate. :stuck_out_tongue:

Cause lets be real. If you say you got some software for free, people will most likely assume piracy. Which would make you look bad. But with FOSS I can get things for free and not look bad because it’s FOSS. :stuck_out_tongue:

But I’m sure Facebook, Nintendo and Netflix keep tabs on the BSDs to an extent… Hopefully. :stuck_out_tongue:

This is pissening. Without getting into OS wars, there are a lot of things that merit using an X_BSD.

Then again, with how little people care about security (it’s more about passing an audit) and throwing in “the best tool for the job” philosophy, I can see why people don’t use it just to use it.

Boss! If you need any distractions, I’ll be happy to provide them.

Yes. I guess I decided to use some sort of BSD version for the laptop I have. Since it’s going to be connected to the tv which one should I use?
Also, I accept your one year BSD challenge, but it’s going to be on the laptop I will probably hardly directly use (mostly through ssh from RH, I hope) :stuck_out_tongue:

the only BSD we really need:

https://bsd.uk.com/

there are two things that i am intersted (just like all the other idiots who seem to be bored with linux) in the whole BSD craze that broke out and i love:

  • performance and monitoring of such in an enterprise grade workload setting

  • trying to make BSD a daily driver and game on it

So i ugess that it basically comes down to what BSD can do excidingly good and on the other hand to make BSD into popOS or something. i have very expectation of this endevaour.

i wonder what wonderful things we will do this is forgotten OS of glorious past!

@adubs get on that bsd train, look at this.

reee, not forgotten.

I wanna try OpenBSD as a server, if it works well enough, might migrate my blog server to that. Why OpenBSD? Coz security and server are friends.
