Is there any interest in the FreeBSD/Gentoo project ?
Gentoo was always my distro of choice, and I later found OpenBSD. Now
I've found found this combo that's great (I'll go with FreeBSD instead of OpenBSD) if I can just get an install going.
'Just "testing the waters"............

I don't think its on many people's radar.

I know about it, but I get by fine with Gentoo (which I'm using less and less), so I never tried it out. Good luck though ;)

freebsd is very popular as a server distro. not my choice for a desktop though

Hello everyone! Just joined the forum. I am currently looking at PCBSD, which is supposed to be a desktop version of the server program. It is supposed to be easier to navigate your computer and easier to load than than other versions. I will let you know if I can ever get the computer I want to put it on going. A friend gave it to me. Said he went to put a different OS on it and it won't work anymore. It appears to be in a boot up loop with setup not complete. I have tried another HD and it does the same. It appears the BIOS is messed up. I have tried finding something on the BIOS, but have nothing that looks like it would work. That is why I joined this forum, to see if I can find some help. Off to check another thread.

Doesn't pcBSD cost money? Like netBSd and openBSD.

ok, nevermind then. for some reason i thought it cost money.

Um, all of those are free.

openBSD is perhaps the most "free" of all the *nixes.

>Um, all of those are free.

Nobody asked you.

Sturm, how is openBSD the most free?

No binary blobs.

IMO no need to be sorry, Joe. the guy is outright rude.

It doesn't take a genius...

Anyway, OpenBSD and FreeBSD are both free, OpenBSD unfortunately lacks some of the 'features' that I like with FreeBSD, and doesn't have the same ports tree :x

openbsd is built with an emphasis on security
i like it for my mail server
