The questions you ask can easily be answered by some basic searching of the FreeBSD web site, FAQ and email archives. Some of these are also answered in various online publications that I don't have time to look up for you right now, but you can easily find them. Onlamp is one that has covered FreeBSD features and comparisons with several OSen. Google is your friend. > - Do the FBSD developers work for free? Generally yes. They are not paid by the FreeBSD foundation although some of them are fortunate enough to work for companies who view their contributions to FreeBSD as relevant to their company work and so allow them to consider the portion of their time spent on FreeBSD as part of their company work. > - What advanced features it has that for example Windows, or MacOS dont > have? It is reliable. MAC can claim that to a great extent too. MS cannot. It is relatively secure. Networking is fundamental in FreeBSD and a crowbar-ed addon in MS so it is inherently better in networking. It is truly multitasking and MS is not. There are many others. > - What well knows companies use FreeBSD as servers? (I know that Hotmails > used fbsd servers like 5 years ago). Last I knew Yahoo was using FreeBSD. THere are others. Many companies use FreeBSD for their network and backend service even when they have MS on people's desktops. I hope you will do a more complete job of research before handing in your paper just based on what I write. Your teacher is likely to be reading this list too and will see this. > > Thanks for help. I suggest you find a machine and install FreeBSD and become familiar with it. You will slowly begin to understand the advantages with experienve. ////jerry > > > > -- > http://feudaltimes.com.ar - Webmaster, designer and programmer > _______________________________________________ > email@example.com mailing list > http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions > To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]" _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
