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 does run on FreeBSD and runs a great deal more stable than when I've been running VBox on other platforms (I've had up to 5 concurrent VMs running with uptimes of months without any issues)


Perhaps we will see FreeBSD on a tablet or smartphone someday soon. iOS* does not count.

To be honest, I doubt that. Not because FreeBSD isn't capable, but more because that arena is already over crowded so I can't envisage FreeBSD being utilised that way.

But maybe someone will prove me wrong ;)

* Although I have an iPhone, IOS will always be Cisco's Internetworking Operating System. I get confused all the time when I see references to iOS (by Apple).

You mean Infogear's iPhone now runs Cisco's Internetworking OS? ;-)
