FreeBSD "FreeBSD is back to its incredible performance and now can take advantage of multi-core/CPUs systems very well... So well that some benchmarks on both Intel and AMD systems showed release 7.0 being faster than Linux 2.6 when running PostreSQL or MySQL. Federico Biancuzzi interviewed two dozen developers to discuss all the cool details of FreeBSD 7.0: networking and SMP performance, SCTP support, the new IPSEC stack, virtualization, monitoring frameworks, ports, storage limits and a new journaling facility, what changed in the accounting file format, jemalloc(), ULE, and more."

My local FTP mirror, ftp.de.freebsd.org, doesn't have them yet... :-( So I have to wait. I'm just preparing some testing hardware...

I've got no torrent client program installed (don't have much use for this), this will possibly take place on the new 7.0 system. Installation disc has been downloaded and recorded onto CD-R.

Enjoy!


Il surely will - this is going to be a great weekend. Happy make install. =^_^=

Good morning BSD,
I got a feeling that it's gonna be a wonderful day.
The Sun in the sky has a smile on its face
and it's shining to salute to the SGI's in place.

*takes newspaper* FreeBSD 7.0-RELEASE available for download!

Oh boy, it's well to say:
"Good norning BSD."

Good morning BSD!


I needed to sing this. :-)
