FreeBSD The FreeBSD project has announced the immediate release of version 9.1, featuring a new Intel GPU driver and dozens of other drivers, an optional new C+11 stack, lots of improvements to IPv6 hardware offload support, and more. You can now run a ZFS file system in a jail, and the kernel now provides support for IronLake, SandyBridge, and IvyBridge CPUs. Check out the release notes for the juicy details.

It's not just wireless, hardware in general seems to be a problem. I've tested the 9.x series on around 12-15 machines so far. I think it has successfully booted on 2 or 3 of those machines. Each of these boxes successfully runs Windows and Linux.

I love the design of FreeBSD and I think they are making some wonderful progress with file systems and package management. Sadly I can't make sure of these features without replacing my hardware.
