FreeBSD By now, anyone who is even remotely related to an IT-type position has heard about Linux, and has most likely used it, if only to see what all the hype is about. However, GNU/Linux is not the only "free" Unix type OS available. FreeBSD and its cousins, NetBSD and OpenBSD are all offshoots of BSD UNIX, a commercial UNIX also known as Berkeley Software Distribution. This article will help you learn more about FreeBSD, its differences from Linux, and it will ease a potential migration process.

The Long and the Short of it

Obviously this is a tech related forum, but I feel the need to point out something: this article should have had an editor. Aside from the back and forth above that kept me entertained for the past 1/2 hour I feel it didn't really offer anything in terms of actual information.

Now, had it simply been a post... that could be overlooked, but it wasn't, it was a feature.

It is a little difficult to take something seriously when the author is tripping over his words... and typos?!

Perhaps that's why I even bothered to read the rants that followed.
