FreeBSD "The next major update of FreeBSD 7, due this December, is in the running to be one of the most impressive FreeBSD releases to date. The ULE scheduler has now reached maturity, leading to significant gains across the board (particularly in server workloads). This new scheduler brings notably impressive performance improvements to both MySQL and PostgreSQL. In the first section of this article, I'm going to take a look at what's new. In the second section, I will discuss what the future holds for FreeBSD beyond the upcoming FreeBSD 7.0 release, including screen shots of the revamped FreeBSD installer 'finstall'."

Deadlines missed, text outdated

When I wrote and published this FreeBSD was supposed to be released end of December -- of course the deadline was missed / pushed back as it almost always is.

The preview/review was of the RC releases back in the day (2 months ago I believe).

I think this was published in Jan or Feb when the text was slightly less confusing.
