FreeBSD The FreeBSD team has released FreeBSD 7.3, the fourth release of the 7-STABLE branch. There will be one more release in this branch, but at this point, most developers are already working on the 8-STABLE branch. FreeBSD 7.3 focusses on bug fixes, but has a few new features as well.

You're making a problem when there is none, then analyze how that problem came to be. Let me paraphraze:

FreeBSD is not like a big fat hamster. This is a problem, I declare. What can we do about it? Maybe his mother was a small furry drinking bitcch so this poor FreeBSD had bad furnes and greatnes genes? Let's come together and waste our brainwaves on how can we avoid this tragic problem when history repeats itself. Yea, then we'll make FreeBSD into a hamster.

If you need a prepackaged and polished version of FreeBSD why don't you take OsX? Now what's the problem again?

Did you mean to reply to me?? I'm not making a problem out of anything. I actually think popularity is way overrated and I could care less if the system I'm using (Linux) is suitable for the masses, because it's definitely is for me. I was simply replying to the OP about the reasons why FreeBSD is not as popular as Linux IMO.

Do not worry, the previous poster's reading and comprehension skills seem very minimal.

Honestly, I have no clue what he is talking about in a few of his responses to my comments. It is like we are talking about orange juice, and he goes off on rants about apple orchards or something.

Entertaining none the less...
