Well this belongs in the unix section, so there it will be.

And if you want to know where they are now, just go to their website

Generally on their website you can view what updates were made, so you'd get a better bearing than what we could provide if you took 30 seconds to go look.

i was hoping that maybe someone was running free BSD here and could give some personal favorite spots for info. i went to http://www.freebsd.org and it is plenty helpful. in the past it was hard to find an active forum for users of this OS. maybe i should just subscribe to the mailing list(s)? im impressed that they are at relaese 4.5 stable and it hasnt been that long since i played with it last :). i bought 4.2 with the manuals etc. mainly paid for the book as it can be DLed(<--i think we all know this) for free and it was worth every penny too. walnut creek rox.

I've played with FreeBSD, yet not a user. However it like Unix/Linux is free (hell it's called FreeBSD). All open scource, the only thing u pay for is packages and books.

yeah i have installed and configured a basic setup of freebsd 4.3 but i just played with it nothing serious. i would much rather read the book than man pages :(. it was worth the $$ i paid for it IMO. besides im supporting the cause which is always a good thing :).

imma try again when i get motorvated to put another box together. i have several boxes(boxen?) just lying in pieces but well just havent been in the mood.

i subscribed to one of the many mailing list so we will see where that leads.

Well good deal and good luck. Yes glad to hear you support the cause. Everyone here should support the open scource revolution (well that is what I think LOL). Hmm I would say you call it boxes. Well have fun, go build some. I have a LAN in my house, I just build PCs, do all sorts of stuff for the hell of it LOL. Take care.
