My experience with FreeBsd 8

Filed under
BSD

Freebsd is really a great distro. FreeBsd can be also considered the mother or father of all the other BSD derivatives you can find over at Distrowatch. Classified as the unknown giant among free operating systems, Freebsd 8, which was recently released, is really a great and stable operating system.

Oh ya, please take the title with a pinch of salt. I am thoroughly annoyed and irritated (due to lack of sleep) with Freebsd 8. But at the same time, I am amazed with Freebsd's stability.

So, fresh from the Linux world, I was really fascinated by the BSDs. Prior to the writing of this article, my only experience with BSD was with PCBSD, which is also derived from FreeBsd.

A few reasons why I am fascinated with BSDs are because Arch Linux ( the distro which I use ) is somewhat loosely modeled around the BSDs. Their package management and the port system make a really great combination making installing software a breeze. But it did take sometime to get used to it.

Contain yourself: The layman's guide to Docker

Welcome to the age of containerization, where an ecosystem led by startup Docker is leading IT organizations to ineffable peaks of efficiency, helping them scale their workloads ever-higher, and probably baking them a nice cake to boot (it's my birthday, I have cake on the brain, sue me). Microsoft, Google and Amazon Web Services are all tripping over themselves to make sure prospective customers know that their clouds are the place to be if you want to get the most from Docker.
