I may add that I'm using FreeBSD exclusively (!) on my desktop since version 4.0 without any problems. I just don't describe the use "desktop" with "runs 'Flash' flawlessly". As Wojciech siad, it completely depends on what you are going to do with your system. The FreeBSD OS is just the basis for this, not the entire means. > > By the way, using a headless Win PC as a print server takes up virtually > > no space, its power consumption is inconsequential, and I am not even > > anyway buing standard-compliant printer seems like simpler and cheaper > solution for me. It's worth mentioning that you need to buy along with the printer: the PC and the license for "Windows". I'm not sure what this costs altogether, but maybe it justifies buying an office-class printer that is fully standard-compliant and will serve you more years than a non-printer would. > Even if it would be slightly more expensive, i would prefer it, to keep > things simple. Doesn't even need to be more expensive. It just depends on how much time (and here we are again) you spend on researching and evaluating which product is the best for your particular needs. -- Polytropon >From Magdeburg, Germany Happy FreeBSD user since 4.0 Andra moi ennepe, Mousa, ... _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
