FreeBSD The FreeBSD team has released FreeBSD 7.3, the fourth release of the 7-STABLE branch. There will be one more release in this branch, but at this point, most developers are already working on the 8-STABLE branch. FreeBSD 7.3 focusses on bug fixes, but has a few new features as well.

I didn't equate linux dominance to its HW support. I simply stated that BSD and Solaris lack of HW support hurts their adoption.

Two very different things.

Linux, from a commercial SW development standpoint is an absolute nightmare. My point at a very basic level was that had the BSDs or Solaris had a similar level of HW suport (and other HW-coupled technologies like CUDA, OpenCL/GL et al) they would represent far ideal platforms to code and grow with.

From a hacking and single task customization standpoint, sure Linux is great.
