I notice a lot of references to version 4.x. Is there any overwhelming reason why its use seems to be still popular. I'm wanting to set up a server (just for play) on my home network using a PII machine. Am I better off using an older version for such old equipment? If so, do any particular versions stand out?
A lot changed b/n 4.x and 5.x (and 6.x). Enough that a lot of people haven't upgraded because what they have works, they know it, and upgrading might break an app/system of theirs that isn't broken.
That said, I've gone from 4.x straight to 6.x with my last round of servers. Granted I was starting from scratch and I didn't mind the adjustment time (by adjustment I mean getting used to /etc/rc.d/* instead of /etc/rc.xyz*, etc.)
If I were you, I'd go with 6.x. -philip _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
