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.

Increasingly, Suzy and Brian are discovering that a smart phone and game console will cover most of their needs.


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.

I'm not selling any OS and I don't use Windows.

smartphones have tiny screens, limited CPU/memory, poor input and very limited apps. The input issue is even worse with on screen virtual kb's.

consoles have poor input and limited apps and some still with limited CPU/memory.

Neither comes even close to truly replacing a workstation or laptop even for the average user.
