FreeBSD Some people already submitted this news last week, but it wasn't until today that it became official: the FreeBSD team has announced the release of FreeBSD version 9.0. As you may expect from the major version number change, this is releas eis packed with new stuff.

I sell boxes and laptops to Suzy the checkout girl and Brian the backhoe operator, you know, normal folks?


Increasingly, Suzy and Brian are discovering that a smart phone and game console will cover most of their needs. Personally, I'd be happy if the AOL 2.0 set would move on, stop calling themselves "geeks" (with a giggle) and sequester themselves on FaceBook and Twitter, allowing the rest of us to get on with our legitimate tech interests.

If all you did was make calls, text people, watch movies or play videos games that would be true. But the average person does more than that so the comment couldn't be further from the truth.

So you're the one handing out all those "geek" badges?

Out of curiosity, what OS are you selling?

Ah, I see. You're selling Windows.

You can be a geek about other things than computers. I know a lot of people that know far too much about My Little Pony.
