FreeBSD "The first RC build for the FreeBSD-9.0 release cycle is now available. ISO images for the architectures amd64, i386, ia64, powerpc, powerpc64, and sparc64 are available on most of our FreeBSD mirror sites. One of the many new features in 9.0 we would like to be tested is the new installer, so we encourage our users to do fresh installation on test systems. Alternatively, users upgrading existing systems may now do so using the freebsd-update(8) utility."

Yeah, it's just you...

Why should the quality of code be measured by changes, features and new bells and whistles?

What has that have to do with anything?

FreeBSD isn't ahead or behind anyone or anything. I deploy many FreeBSD servers as a professional, and it has never failed me like many "feature of the day" nonsense that the rest of you are judging your success by.

Leave FreeBSD alone, you want the latest nonsense and all the instability that comes with it - go run Windows or Linux for that matter.

Somewhat concerned a DragonFly BSD committer would post such a comment.
