I use http://www.vultr.com/ for FreeBSD - their packages are similarly or better priced than DO. With Vultr, you can run their automated install, (which in itself just automates a typical FreeBSD install - there are no OS hacks) or just install off an ISO etc. I don't know what's unusual with the DO virtualisation, but vultr just works like a normal server (though they do restrict to virtio devices where applicable rather than emulated harware) You can even install a windows ISO (as long as you've sideloaded virtio drivers onto the install disk), or with FreeBSD, "it just works" Cheers, Jamie _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-current To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-current-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
