I'm still a bit dumb-founded, because I'm not sure what an answer to that question would look like and how one could formulate a "decent" answer. I wonder if installing fBSD on a "sand-box" partition/machine and just build sand castles until you're comfortable is the best way to go. If your looking for someone (i.e., one or three folks) to say, "Oh, fBSD is very intuitive and if you know M$, then the migration should be a breeze!" Good luck! In fact, how would you treat any answer that you got to your question. I think you should just try it (I suspect having a linux background will help). > > Regards, > > James Phillips > > > __________________________________________________________________ > Ask a question on any topic and get answers from real people.
