• Going back to BSD

    From poindexter FORTRAN@VERT/REALITY to All on Thu Apr 4 09:27:00 2024
    I went into an office yesterday and availed myself of the free bandwidth
    to download the NetBSD and OpenBSD installers. Wish me luck!

    SunOS, BSD/OS and FreeBSD were my intro to UNIX systems administration
    back in the '90s. Looking forward to see how much has changed and how
    much I remember.

    I'm thinking about firing up a VM of FreeBSD, thats what I first used to build synchronet back in the day, dunno if I was just wanting to abuse myself, and that I did..

    I'm sure I had gotten under Rob, Deuce, and everyone elses skin too because it was a first for me lol.. But I enjoyed it. Ive been playing with Manjaro linux on my macbook for the past couple days and actually like it pretty good. little
    different that what I am used to with debin and ubuntu, but has been great so far.. If I end up liking it better than ubunto it's possible I will move it onto my BBS machine in the future.

    Good luck.

    THey just released the newest OpenBSD version today, so maybe you want to try that one instead of the one you downloaded...

    I only have experience with FreeBSD. I used to run it as my daily driver. I like how there is only one way to do things (compared to Linux).
