I'm using Debian GNU/Linux for some time now, and there are lots of properties that I love and - I depend on. The main point for me is the really easy way for updating/upgrading of the system and installing/removing of software packages. Some month ago, I played with BSD and found it really amazing. It is ultrafast, stable, supports lots of devices and son on. Really great! But I'm a simple developer and I'm not interested in to know system administration and all related tasks as more as neccessary. As we all know, security is the primer problem of us netpeoples. And installing security patches is a important thing. In Debian it is a simple commend line to install updated software on my gateway/firewall. What is to do in the same case in FreeBSD?
