FreeBSD Some people already submitted this news last week, but it wasn't until today that it became official: the FreeBSD team has announced the release of FreeBSD version 9.0. As you may expect from the major version number change, this is releas eis packed with new stuff.

license war aside. I think FreeBSD trades blows for features and compatibility with any other OS out there. all it lacks is the performance lead you get from optimization.

most benchmarks will show FreeBSD stuff lagging behind par. but all in, this is still a really crazy and wonderful place for such software to be. and it is lead by a small organization.
