"There are a few drawbacks: the flash support for FreeBSD is quite bad (it doesn't work for me since I upgraded to 6.1), there are no real 3D drivers. FreeBSD is not the right system for games and multimedia. "

Have you read anything about PC-BSD 1.1 release lately? There is 3D support and nVidia native binary driver in pbidir.com and I personally played Linux versions of Unreal Tournament 2004 and Quake 4 without problem.

ATI 3D works on my Radeon 9600Pro lightning fast and this is OSS DRI driver.

Flash 7 PBI is removed from pbidir cos Adobe sucks and they won't allow download their crap from other sites.

BAN FLASH!!!!

Hi antik ;)

Maybe there is some misunderstanding here...

Please see http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/query-pr.cgi?pr=96374

Afaik there's no prob with a Flash 7 pbi. Flash 6 is another matter, it is marked FORBIDDEN and will expire 2006-06-07, see http://www.freshports.org/www/linux-flashplugin6/

HTH, Daniel

The OSS ATI driver supports chipsets up to the 92xx series. The 95xx and newer series aren't supported, unless ATI has recently released new specs.

I should add before I get flamed to death, the by support I mean support for accelerated 3D graphics.
