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.

They aren't upping the system requirements.

Windows 8 will use less resources than Windows 7. BTW I actually have the platform preview and it does seem to take up less resources than Windows 7.

Windows 7 used less resources than Windows Vista (Vista used 600mb for dwm.exe (aero), 7 doesn't use anywhere near that much. Also 7 works far better on Dual and Quad Core systems than Vista or XP ever did).

Windows 7 works well on machines from 2005. XP RTM running well on machines from 1995? I don't think so.

Lucas, I have registered to your site but I can't create a new topic, neither I can reply to some other topic.

All other guys, please forgive me, but we don't have a personal message system on osnews.

IT isn't my site, I just get drunk and talk bollox on there.

You need to post an intro thread in the new members area to prove you aren't a tard. Then you are most likely to be granted access.

Actually, there is. In your profile you can send messages to your friends and fans.

It's a rather glaring deficiency, isn't it. We used to. I'm not sure why it was dropped.
