has anyone ever tried freebsd here? Its threading model from a users point of view is brilliant. It never freesez,  the GUI never stops responding, even when a CD is being burnt and a tape drive backup is in operation simulateously.

Albeit Java 1.2 is only supported by SUN, but there is a port for java 1.4_04. Besides, you have a linux emulation layer on there too, so you can emulate things that linux can run, at a comparable speed too ( if not faster e.g. Quake III)

So whoever is using a Unix or Linux, switch to freebsd now  Wink

The real question is binary compatibility. Whenever someone talks about the ability to emulate, many of us smile wisely and think "never again" having born the pain of discovering just what it means for an emulator to be 99% accurate instead of 99.9% or 100% (hint: it can potentially mean that no programs work at all!).

If xxxBSD can simply execute all linux apps - with some kind of simple proviso such as "which use glibc or later" - without emulation shenanigans, then it's a good proposition. But where it can't, then you're talking about going into the no-man's land of proprietary OS's that your critical applications may or may not be available for. (Anyone else here used BeOS?)

Sigh. BeOS. If only Sun had bought them.

bah - they'd probably ruin it too...
My bet is still on OpenBeOS, aka Haiku-OS ( - still making huge progress, though it will still take some time...
