I am exited! Why? cause I just installed FreeBSD 4.6 and its the shits! From all of the recent *nix installs I have done, I love this one.
It is simple, it is fast and it does not install a load of crap you dont want to install. Everything is editable - a bit like expert mode on some other installs. It asks you for everything in plain english, no [censored] around and you have your New Unix system installed in less than 10 minutes.
The boot loader, I have besides FBSD also win2k installed. I thought allright I will just copy the boot info from fbsd to a file that Ill stick in the root of c: an then point boot.ini to it.
Why? Damn it the boot manager from Fbsd is great, no shitting around, very simple!
I now have!
F1, F2 or F3 how much simpler can it get? no data corruption whats so ever with the fdisk tool they have provided - its so simple I bet my 3 year old brother could do it if he was able to read!
It gives you the options of installing 3rd party packages straight away - this is nice!!!
And it install just the necessary unless u tell it otherwise.
So I am very happy - FreeBSD dev robots - HATS OFF!!!
Im now off to configure the system so I can do some NFS installs like Gnome and [censored]!
I am telling you guys, go FBSD you will not regret it!!!!!!!!!!!!!
<<psychogen>> the happy one!
