FreeBSD FeeBSD 7.0-beta1 has been released, with 6.3-beta1 on its way. "We have entered the final phases of the FreeBSD-7.0 Release cycle which also means the beginning of the FreeBSD-6.3 Release cycle. Because the people who support the ports for FreeBSD also need to go through a freeze cycle as part of releases we had decided to combine the two releases to try and minimize the impact on the ports maintainers."

I have been running 7.0 Current for several months now and it's been fantastic for my desktop use. Awesome stability and very fast, especially with the ULE scheduler, which is disabled by default but is a recommended optimization. The FreeBSD GNOME team has also done an outstanding job with GNOME (see freebsd.org/gnome). Xorg 7.3, Compiz-Fusion, are all available in ports as well.

/me loves FreeBSD.

The GNOME 2.2.1 and the rest of MC ports will be merging into FreeBSD ports sometime this week. ;-)

It's GNOME 2.20.1 and not 2.2.1, and I'm sure it's a typo, but if not one must say that the more than 7 years difference between the two releases is quite significant ;)
