FreeBSD

There has been a lot of maturing technologies in FreeBSD 10, with many new features which make this release, I think, the most exciting one in years. A lot of development has gone into virtualisation support. Virtualisation with FreeBSD Jails has been available for a long time, but not so much "full virtualisation".

Let's have a look at the some of the most talked about, most requested and most interesting features that have found their way into or are planned for 10.0, but may not make the deadline.

IOW, if you wait until 10.0 is released, you can completely ignore the ports tree and never compile anything manually again. ;)


Nope ;)

You can have binary packages, but there will probably non-existent packages like LAME.

Also, if You need FFMPEG with LAM and FAAC support you still need to recompile it.
