Bill, Thanks for the feedback. I've been programming embedded systems for almost 20 years, so I have a natural aversion to apparently simple changes that "make things work" :-)
The nicest high-level code I've ever seen in the source to Tcl - if only all code looked like that. I've been playing with FreeBSD over the last two or three months trying to implement a headless server that will help dysfunctional development teams control their bugs and source code. I chose FreeBSD because Linux seems so frigging bloated, and the distros are too varied. You never know if the distro you pick will be around next year. FreeBSD gives me a much warmer and fuzzier feeling about the commitment to release quality code and making it very clear which releases are for production, and which are for testing. My work so far is documanted in these articles: <http://www.hempeldesigngroup.com/embedded/stories/bdgFreeBSDEmbedded.html> <http://www.hempeldesigngroup.com/embedded/stories/bdgFreeBSDSetup.html> <http://www.hempeldesigngroup.com/embedded/stories/bdgFreeBSDandWindows.html> <http://www.hempeldesigngroup.com/embedded/stories/bdgFreeBSDPortsAndPerl.html> <http://www.hempeldesigngroup.com/embedded/stories/bdgFreeBSDPostfix.html> <http://www.hempeldesigngroup.com/embedded/stories/bdgFreeBSDApache2.html> <http://www.hempeldesigngroup.com/embedded/stories/bdgFreeBSDGnats.html> I hope to write more, including articles on customizing Gnats, using Subversion, splint, backups, and security. This developer community seems pretty friendly and knowledgable. I think I'll stick around :-) Cheers, Ralph _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
