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 wish that VirtualBox ran on FreeBSD. I need to do more investigation into how well running virtual machines on top of FreeBSD works.


VirtualBox OSE does run in FreeBSD, quite nicely actually.

I typically have an instance running a Windows XP image on 9-CURRENT (haven't updated yet since -RELEASE), so that I can run Visio, and get full printing and scanning capabilities from my Brother laser MFC that doesn't have a proper CUPS and SANE driver. There's even USB pass-through nowadays, although it's not perfect (not sure if it's any better on Linux or just the same).
