    This people at FreeBSD are serious about what they do, look at that report, that's organization. maybe the kernel it's not as famous as Linux but this is a excelent OS
    it deserves to be one of the best UNIX around. thank you for this wonderful piece of art.

      And why exactly is it a "wonderful piece of art"? Why did you choose these rather unusual words to describe this operating system?

        I don't know about that guy, but reading the report/release notes, it's nice to see what I consider documentation or at least some of ExplainLikeI'm5 of what something they worked on actually does. Check this out.

          The most interesting work is bhyve.
          In a world that's slowly moving to large scale virtualization / cloud installation FBSD cannot afford to be left behind if it wants to remain relevant.

          ... I wonder how close it is to KVM/Xen feature wise and performance wise?

            keep in mind that XEN dom0 is possible on FreeBSD already. You also cannot compare bhyve to KVM and XEN. They are completely different virtualization solutions!

              is a expression, do you know what they are?, look: excelent OS, great software, great ideas, happy now?

                Lol, I guess it would go on as usually.
                - OpenCL is theoretically here, but good luck to use it. Have they got any GCNs on wheels? Not to mention that after looking on their wiki I got a question: are these guys actually running their code at all?
                - Bhyve is "improved" but who dares to use it in production? OTOH I use KVM for something like 5 years and it just works. To degree I can rely on it for various mission critical tasks.
                - ZFS mumbling ends up like this: they have slow, resource-hog and troublesome enterpeise ZFS, which only works reasonably on large storages in powerful servers, and crappy and outdated UFS, wihch is something similar to EXT2-age filesystems in terms of used techs and features. There are no other things to choose from. Feel free to choose from troubled enterprise resource hog and outdated crap.
                - Messing with ARMs is cool. But good luck to make some WORKING appliance, etc which is not plagued by dumb troubles here and there. When you'll try it, you suddenly understand FreeBSD lacks most of features one could need. Say, they do not have flash filesystems. Even Linux struggles with something like UBI and UBIFS to get things working on, say, "bare" NAND (especially on MLC nand). What would happen with FBSD? Well, I guess they're not even aware one can connect NAND directly to MC of CPU (and face all hardships of doing FTL). And even if they are, they do not have solutions to deal with it anyway. Shitty peripherals support is a hallmark of BSDs. They would yell device is "supported" when system barely boots CPU core and spits some crap into UART. Good luck to use "supported" device to do something useful and working.

                    But AFAIK in PVHVM mode. PVH mode is still experimental.

                    I desperately miss the ignore list for endman.
