Want to run FreeBSD on your Raspberry Pi or other ARM-based device? You’re not far away from being able to do so. The folks over at the FreeBSD Developers Notebook report huge gains made in running FreeBSD on ARM v6 processors. They’ve got builds prepared for the Raspberry Pi, Beagleboard, and several others, though support isn’t yet total. What can you do with it? Lots of stuff, like running the Go programming language on it like Dave Cheney. Cool!
This really is great news. The more choices, the better!
