    FreeBSD 9.1 RELEASE was released 7 days ago...

    http://svnweb.freebsd.org/base/release/9.1.0/

    There is always a little time between the RELEASE and the RELEASE announcement...

      Its done already

      It has already been tagged and is being redistributed vie csup since Dec, 1st (this has also been retweeted by the official freebsd twitter). There is currently work on the mirroring and load distribution infrastructure (also for the new pkg system), thats why its probly taking longer to roll out the ISOs, after which the announcement will be made.

        (Random comment about the relevance of the missed goal of the FreeBSD Foundation.)

              Precisely: A mediocre BSD clone.

                I am not searching for the next Windows. Why should I want another Windows?

                  NO, hell no ... it seems like the "diversity" speech ends where linux ends.
                  Improving the FLOSS ecosystem for everyone (submitting code that benefits us all platforms) is another story ... which I support

                    FreeBSD has all the drivers I need to work.

                      From what cave are you? Linux is the most powerful and most advanced kernel/OS on this planet. BSD has lost long ago and it's simply meaningless OS now.

                            Most Advanced != Most widely developed FLOSS system.
                            Of course, it's not about quality... just about quantity, right? *sigh

                              Insane. What is it with people? We have Linux fanboys who just must troll in BSD subjects, and then we have BSD fanboys who just must troll in Linux subjects, and then we even have Windows fanboys here who really have no interest in either but who also come here trolling.

                              Yes, BSD does not have anything near the development Linux enjoys, that doesn't make Linux inherently 'better'. At the same time the slower BSD development is not indicative of better 'quality', it could just as likely be the obvious lack of developers.

                              As long as people are using BSD it's not irrelevant. When Linux first started out and probably a long time in it's existance I'm certain it had a lot less users than BSD have now. If the BSD's actually didn't fill a need then they would indeed be gone as no one would be using them, that is obviously not the case, not even remotely so.

                              Also the BSD's caters for a different open source philosophy than that of say FSF, and it's great we have this diversity no matter on which side of that fence you find yourself.

                              Unfortunately there are these zealots in each camp that can't accept the existance/success of the other which leads to these endlessly pointless flame wars, and instead of celebrating all these systems have in common they will make an issue out of any difference and proclaim this to be undisputable proof that _their_ choice is superior.

                              Yes, discussions regarding these differences are inevitable as they do define these systems to certain extents, and the pros/cons of these differences can actually be interesting basis for discussion, and when the stars align even enlightening. However for this to happen we really need to get rid of the goddamn trolling which derails any attempts at a reasonable discussion. This is a battle we are losing here at Phoronix, it's getting increasingly worse.

                              PLEASE STOP TROLLING!
