    Planned vs Actual features

    Your article appears a bit misleading as some of the "planned" (or, perhaps, more accurately suggested) features are unlikely to appear in FreeBSD-9. For example ZFS as the default filesystem, Xen...

    FreeBSD and Networking

    Portability?

    I thought DeviceKit (as it were) had an interest in producing portable code. That all the OS specific code was abstracted and thus allowing other OS's (such a FreeBSD) to easily leverage the common...
