FreeBSD FreeBSD 6.2, one of the most popular versions of the free BSD Unix operating system, is out with new features and updates. It plugs holes and, in addition to the usual route of installing directly to a hard drive this time around, offers a LiveCD that can be used to rescue a broken system. Developers on the free version of the BSD Unix operating system hope it will help build momentum for what is arguably the most popular BSD variant in use.

I've heard many people saying that the project is somewhat stalled, there isn't many new features, there are mainstream technology that doesn't exist in Freebsd and so.

A native Flash implementation is about the only thing mainstream that doesn't exist. Java? Check and pretty much everything else which works on Linux works on FreeBSD. I run across the occasional close-source app which won't work, but I wouldn't call any of them main stream.

Yes, FreeBSD 7 will rock!
