I am new to Freebsd tho, long time Linux/Windows user.

install software:
seems the way to to this is pkg_add -r software-name

system update:
still not sure? tho this is probly something really simple, seems more the
one way to do it.

main difference between packages and ports?
files in /usr/ports are rules and patches to build programs from sources, excluding sources (which are downloaded when you type make or make install)
