FreeBSD It's not exciting to talk about money, but it does often take cash to keep funding the developers that improve code. Congrats to the FreeBSD foundation then, for beating their fundraising goal of $500K by almost 40%. The $690K they raised will go to funding coders, developer conferences, and some limited travel. That bodes well for continued strong support for FreeBSD in general, soon to release version 9.1 (currently at RC3).

As a nice coincidence 9.1 was just released. ISOs were already available for those that looked. Unfortunately you still can only use ports to install software as the binary package building system isn't up yet after the security breach.

HAH! I had downloaded 9.1-RELEASE a few days ago without even realizing that it was the release and not RC3. Time to give it a whirl on some bare metal.
