FreeBSD

I’ve started trying FreeBSD. It seems nice and is less hyped than Linux. Also I know my way around Linux, FreeBSD is a new challenge. If all of my hardware is supported odds are that I depenguinize (manually by reinstalling it) my Linux boxen. I run Red Hat Linux 9 on it now and after looking around for another distro trying Debian, Gentoo and Mandrake Linux, Gentoo was the one I liked the most. After learning that it used some concepts of BSD I gave the three free BSDs a go. FreeBSD was the one I found to my liking so I am now giving 5.2 a beating. I hope it goes well because I’d much more like running FreeBSD than some dead hat distro.
