This series will show you how to get started with a FreeBSD cloud server. The first article will explain some of the differences between Linux and FreeBSD. The tutorials that follow cover the basics of FreeBSD security, maintenance, and software installation. If you are new to FreeBSD, this series will help you get up and running quickly.
I’m sure many die-hard FreeBSD users will find this series of article pointless, but I think it’s an interesting and useful introduction to the platform.
“The FreeBSD team develops the kernel and the base operating system as a cohesive unit, while Linux technically refers to only the kernel, with the other components coming from a variety of sources.”
The open source world would be much better if FreeBSD would have been released earlier than the Linux kernel.
