    FreeBSD rocks!

    I just installed FreeBSD 5.1-RELEASE on my computer, and I am very impressed. I love the ports system, and I like how customizable it is. You can set this thing up however you want, and you don't have to install a bunch of crap you'll never use.

    Everything seems so much more developed and professional than Linux was. I thought Linux was so awesome before trying this, but this is just amazing.

    I have converted to the FreeBSD, and I am not looking back.

    PS: I'm taking the Linus Torvalds is god out of my profile.
    PPS: What is that BSD daemon's name? Does it have one?

    5.1 is pretty risky. 4.8 is much more stable, with a few less features that you probably don't need anyway.

    I'm finally getting an old pentium 4 dell that for free from my high school computer teacher and I'm going to install BSD or some 'nix system other than redhat on it so I can see what Linux is all about.

    edit. scratch that. you ask on the freebsd ports mailing list.
