FreeBSD "Though the open source FreeBSD operating system has changed in many aspects over the last 16 years of its life, one item that has remained relatively static is its underlying network routing architecture. No more: It's getting an overhaul with the upcoming FreeBSD 8.0 release. FreeBSD 8.0, due out next month, will include a new routing architecture that takes advantage of parallel processing capabilities. According to its developers, the update will provide FreeBSD 8.0 with a faster more advanced routing architecture than the legacy architecture."

I wonder if this is in the haiku wifi stack... since It uses the FreeBSD drivers indirectly through a compatibility layer

colin the GSoC student working on it did post in his blog that he is synced with the freebsd 8 drivers for the cards he is working on supporting.

I guess I will have to try out BSD sometime supposedly I hear it is similar to Archlinux which like a lot.

FreeBSD 7.0 is very limited in what it supports. According to this:

4965 support is being added to FreeBSD 8.0 - hopefully that along with other enhancements will make their way into it.

I think the word "very" is misplaced.

Not so long ago BSD had better wireless support than Linux. Who knows, might be still true.

Kudos to Damien Bergamini from the OpenBSD project.
