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.

a small gripe

i am using this OS right now at home - a better configuration method for X is essential, and perhaps some better autodetection of sound cards. getting the user quickly to a desktop is one place where modern linux distros have bsd beat, but this is something that is doable and in 2007, should be there for freebsd too.

anecdotally i see freebsd6.2 being faster on the same hardware than debian etch.
