    FreeBSD Is Just a Smoot OS to run!

    I love FreeBSD.

    My main PC has been running BSD for years. I run a desktop, an email server, a web server, and I RIP DVDs all on the same box and I didn't pay a dime for the software.

    I like KDE but mostly I am using Fluxbox because it is lighter.

    I am writing a document that walks thru how to install a FreeBSD Workstation using FreeBSD 5.3 and KDE.

    I will post it on http://www.bsdcertification.com/guid...orkstation.php when the document is finished. I think it will help newbies. I am also thinking of making having a version for Release, Stable, and Current.

    I use, as my profile says, OpenBSD 3.6. I use it on my laptop, simply because my wireless card(s) work with it. Until FreeBSD comes out with a prism54 driver or adopts the full wi0 driver from Open, my FreeBSD CDs will continue to collect dust.

    I like OpenBSD and FreeBSD, but unfortunately I don't have enough HDD space to install 'em next to Xandros.

    eventually I would like to try DragonFlyBSD, the poll was the first that I had heard about it and I am very interested in trying it out after browsing through its websites and forums hopefully I get enough parts scrounged together soon to give it a go!

    gentoo-bsd for me.. it's fbsd with portage instead of ports.. still experimental.. nice concept, though.
    Their code will be beautiful, even if their desks are buried in 3 feet of crap. - esr

    Interesting idea. But why not just use Ports?

    Yes, DragonFlyBSD does indeed look interesting. Just don't expect the maturity level of the 3 major BSDs (Free, Open, Net) from it - DragonFly is still in heavy development, even though they're at version 1.0 now.

    Have fun.
