FreeBSD Joel Dahl, FreeBSD developer: "FreeBSD development is fast these days and reading CVS commit mails is a time consuming task, but almost always both fun and interesting. However, somewhat secret, the really interesting stuff can be found in the Perforce repository. This is where all the cool projects are maintained, and the daily activity is quite high." It's a summary of all the 'secret' development they have in their perforce repository. It mentions DTrace, Xen, FreeBSD/ARM, FreeBSD/MIPS, a new USB system, and sun4v development, for example.

Actually, FreeBSD's Alan (L.) Cox is not the same person as Linux's Alan Cox.

It's great to hear that jail system is actively developed. Currently it doesn't support limits. This situation forced me to search for another operating system-level virtualization.

I heard that FreeBSD had some problems auto mounting USB drives, would this project eliminate this problem?

...HAL? The last I heard, FreeBSD was working hard on porting the Linux-specific parts of HAL in order to provide feature parity on GNOME. How is this coming along?

marcus and jylefort have done a lot of work. It will be in ports tree when GNOME 2.16 releases. :-) If you can't wait, then use MC ports that have GNOME 2.15.x.

I hope not; I was last using it in 6.1, and the responsiveness was great IMHO - I hope its just a rumour.
