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.

This was very disappointing.

I use Linux for 99.9% of my work. But recently I've been playing around with FreeBSD. I was interested in this article because the title made it sound as if it was informative. It was not. FreeBSD can only profit from Linux's success (I wouldn't have tried it otherwise!). This was pointless propoganda. Get a grip. I think it's sad that this was placed on OSnews, this was completely useless.
