FreeBSD The FreeBSD project has announced the immediate release of version 9.1, featuring a new Intel GPU driver and dozens of other drivers, an optional new C+11 stack, lots of improvements to IPv6 hardware offload support, and more. You can now run a ZFS file system in a jail, and the kernel now provides support for IronLake, SandyBridge, and IvyBridge CPUs. Check out the release notes for the juicy details.

Wireless, is still my issue

It would be just perfect if I could run FreeBSD on my netbook without having to make a ndis on Windows XP wireless Drivers(broadcom).

I know those guys work hard on this OS ;)

Ironically, that's still my problem on Linux also.

The state of Wi-Fi sucks, I've given up on that damn Broadcom chip years ago. To this day, the number of distributions it will actually work on either automatically or after just a little bit of trouble can be counted on one hand. The rest? It's not even worth the trouble. The system is from over half a decade. It is infuriating and hopeless.

broadcom support insists to use their archaic "use our blobs with our firmware" business model, to develop a mixed closed-open driver. that realy sucks

at last, my driver (BCM4313) is working as expected, and i didn't faced any crash(yet)
