    Will there be a Linux vs FreeBSD comparison when 11 is released? It might also be interesting to see some other open source distributions too - NetBSD? Illumos/OpenIndiana?

      If the support is better by then... Last time I tried a few months ago, the FreeBSD compatibility layer was running into more problems compared to when I last tested it years ago.

          I'd be happy to see a showdown of all the BSD distros, alongside some Linux ones.
          FreeBSD
          NetBSD
          OpenBSD
          Debian-kFreeBSD
          Dragonfly BSD
          PCBSD
          MidnightBSD
          GhostBSD
          Debian Stable
          Debian Testing
          Fedora
          Although, getting software to run on all of them may be a lot of work.

          It seems to work well enough for me, though I am only using a small handful of software that isn't already targeted at FreeBSD, so I'm probably not a good judge as to how robust the compatibility layer is.

            The problem children are basically Steam and it's games, which with xmj having stopped working on it means it probably won't get fixed anytime soon unless there's some crossover with the OFED driver that is being expanded into linux-kpi to bring updated graphics support. I have no idea but I'm figuring not.

              Thank you for the explanation. That explains why I haven't noticed the issues (I don't use Steam.)

                Tried it and it worked well. Only reason I am not using it as a daily, is the lack of GTX1080 drivers. Now if I could get my hands on betas....... :-)
