I notice a lot of references to version 4.x. Is there any overwhelming reason

older version for such old equipment?  If so, do any particular versions

FreeBSD, and UNIX for that matter, is based off 30-year-old concepts.
Noboy can deny this. That being said, you can compare the development
of FreeBSD to building a skyscraper on shallow grounds. Naturally, the more
you build the more building is likely to collapse. This is now the case with
the old FreeBSD (in which a couple of smart guys decided to savior into
DragonFly) versus the new FreeBSD. I think the same thing is happening
with Windows versus Vista. As OS development progresses, this little
theory of mine will become more and more obvious. If anyone on this list can
contribute with facts and observations to strenghten this theory, I would
really appreciate it.

Thank you all,
