FreeBSD

There has been a lot of maturing technologies in FreeBSD 10, with many new features which make this release, I think, the most exciting one in years. A lot of development has gone into virtualisation support. Virtualisation with FreeBSD Jails has been available for a long time, but not so much "full virtualisation".

Let's have a look at the some of the most talked about, most requested and most interesting features that have found their way into or are planned for 10.0, but may not make the deadline.

I, for one, would maybe like to see someday a (port?) restoration of the legacy pkg (pre-pkgng) tools, as upgrades here often save a lot of time by CLI parsing of the +CONTENTS file(s), remedying duplicate installs by simply deleting an unwanted packages directory, etc. etc. Convenience over design, but at a more basic level.
