FreeBSD "The FreeBSD operating system is finally through it's buggy 5.x series and into the more reliable 6.x series. Most of the problems of the old days - kernel panics on multi-CPU machines, AMD64 troubles galore, and shaky network drivers - are gone. FreeBSD still isn't perfect, but at least with 6.0-RELEASE it's more stable and functional than it has been in the recent past."

"You're writing an article reviewing the latest release of FreeBSD, and yet you don't see the need to link to the page of the software you're reviewing?

I hope you're not getting paid for this crap."

FreeBSD is my favourite OS. I'm simply a user and thus I just speak for myself, but I really can't understand all these gratuitous, anonymous attacks towards the OSNews editors (they're just a handful, including other threads, but still too many in my view).

This trollish behaviour has nothing to do with the BSD community, and *especially* with the FreeBSD community. I know it well, because I've been reading BSD forums, mailing lists and chat discussions for quite a while. So, the attitude of these anonymous comments is really surprising.. definitely weird, I'd say.

That's why I've got this strange feeling.

A feeling that, since FreeBSD is gaining momentum, it's starting to bother some corporate interests gravitating around other OS's.
To make it short, I've got a feeling that somebody's trying to mess things up between FreeBSD and the press.

Maybe it's just a silly idea.. but anyway, as a humble OSNews reader, I hope to see people behave more politely and respectfully, especially around almost irrelevant issues.

Sorry for this not-minding-my-own-f**king-business thing, but I had to say it ;)
