heise-online.co.uk: The FreeBSD project have released FreeBSD 7.1, an update to the FreeBSD 7 series of stable releases. Among the highlights of the release is support for DTrace inside the kernel, which has been imported from OpenSolaris.
ericsbinaryworld.com/blog: Today’s distro has been described as the Ubuntu of the BSD world. PC-BSD is an easy to use version of FreeBSD. FreeBSD is the behemoth in the BSD world and would probably have a much larger desktop presence if the BSDs hadn’t run into copyright and other proprietary problems right around when most of the GNU toolset was complete.
webmastersbydesign.com: FreeBSD provides a very easy installation process. FreeBSD is one of the most secure operating systems available. The port system is a collection of software that is packaged and ready for installation on a FreeBSD system.
linux.com: FreeBSD is a Unix-like open source operating system that can trace its ancestry back to the original Unix. It's well known and well respected in the server marketplace, but until recently FreeBSD lacked an easy-to-use desktop version. In 2005 the PC-BSD project was started to provide just that. This month PC-BSD version 7 was released.
osnews.com: Recently the PC-BSD team released their latest stable version (PC-BSD 7) code-named Fibonacci Edition. Some of major changes from the previous version include a newer kernel, an experimental ZFS module, and a KDE 4 for desktop environment. Being a Linux junkie, I thought of this as a perfect opportunity to venture into the BSD arena.
gnuman.com: PCBSD is one of the first distributions that has taken a different path when it released its user friendly distribution by choosing to base itself on FreeBSD instead of Linux.
reddevil62-techhead.blogspot: IT has been a while since I used one of the BSD family of computer operating systems (read my review of DesktopBSD here) so I thought it would be interesting to take a look at the latest version of PC-BSD, v 1.5.1.
freebsdnews.net: One of the major differences between FreeBSD and Linux, is that FreeBSD is coherent operating system, and that the building of it is steered and managed by a Core Team.
FreeBSD 7.0 has already been released. If you are a real hacker, the best way to jump in and learn it is hacking together an introductory kernel module. In this article I’ll implement a very basic module that prints a message when it is loaded, and another when it is unloaded.
wheatlandlinux.wordpress: Pretty well actually. The system was stable, I had few problems, except for the fact that I always had to run PC-BSD in safe mode. I also managed to fail in installing the Nvidia graphic driver.
raiden.net: There are some in this world who believe that Linux is the king of all operating systems. In some ways I agree with them. The BSD's however use the more orderly 'Cathedral' model where FreeBSD is shaped by the high priests (the core developers) with input from the novices.
tectonic.co.za: The OpenBSD team traditionally makes available a new song with each new release of its software. The songs, though often of dubious lyrical quality, typically embody the current thinking of the development team, in particular that of team leader Theo de Raadt.
raiden.net: PC-BSD, a strong contender for the top desktop distribution out there, has once again grown, going from version 1.3 to 1.5 in just under a year. In that time it's grown, prospered, and had it's fair share of growing pains as well. But version 1.5 is only one subversion up from the previous version 1.4 that we reviewed. So what makes version 1.5 better than its predecessors and worth a look from us? Well, let's have a look.
linuxhelp.blogspot: Would you like to have all the important Linux and FreeBSD commands with suitable examples fit in a couple of pages ? If you do, then you have got your wish.
lwn.net: The NetBSD project is celebrating its 15th anniversary. Throughout the past fifteen years, NetBSD has increased the portability and security of the 4.4BSD operating system on which NetBSD was based, and added support for new processor and system families, while enhancing the system's performance to such an extent that NetBSD has become known as the most portable operating system in the world.
