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."

Free7+K4

I think Free 7 with KDE4 is going to be one killer system!

But I'm also really looking forward to OpenBSD 4.3 with KDE4, be really nice desktop GUI with seriously secure controls.

But I am seriously going to work on seeing who I can get to switch over to Free7+K4 and get out of Linux and Windows. I think it will be a glamorous desktop.

It looks like it will be a mid-December release, approximately around the same time frame of the official stable release of KDE 4.0

I've been playing with FreeBSD on my MacBook Pro via VMWare the last few days. I couldn't get this beta to finish installing from the boot ISO. It would download a bunch of packages, give me a cryptic message and reboot to a non-working system. 6.2 works fine though.

I too am excited about the prospect of FreeBSD7 + KDE4 but unless suspend/resume works on laptops now (didn't see anything about that in the release notes) it's going to be a tough sell.
