Well, thanks for all the replies. I didn't mean to rub anybody the wrong way, and if I did, I'm sorry. :-P
Up until now, I've basically been running FreeBSD more or less like just another Linux distro, and was beginning to wonder if I was really missing out on something by doing that. That, and I thought I'd give the fanboys a chance to praise their pet OS. :-) Overall, it sounds like I was on the right track, though. FreeBSD has its pros and cons, but it's fundamentally just another Unix-like system. Which is a good thing! ;-) For the record, I really, really, like Debian (and now Ubuntu). I understand that there are packages that allow the Debian packaging system to run on top of the FreeBSD kernel, and I'll definitely have try that out sometime. Anyway, FreeBSD is great, and I'll keep playing with it. :-) William _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
