In the past it was a prophecy, but in the future the past has ocurred!


So, my interest was peaked in BSD for some reason…I think maybe I saw a release (GhostBSD perhaps), and I realized that I don’t really know much about it. I have briefly used PC-BSD (which is based on FreeBSD) before while I was distro-hopping, but I did not get very extensive use out of it.

I started searching for information about BSD and how it relates to (GNU/)Linux, which basically led me to this post: http://www.over-yonder.net/~fullermd/rants/bsd4linux/bsd4linux1.php — This is a very good read, although it does not go into minute detail or anything, it covers some of the general aspects of how the two relate.

As such, this has peaked my distro-hopping interest again…So I think I am going to give FreeBSD a go on my spare laptop. I love ArchLinux, and FreeBSD seems similarly constructed/philosophied. To a point.

I also would like to check out the new Sabayon Linux release—I really liked the past releases, and it appears recently they have made very good improvements. Maybe I will do this in parallel with the BSD…
