Linux-Turned-FreeBSD Distro Comes Up With A New Software License

Filed under
Linux
BSD

While the likes of SprezzOS as the "most beautiful and performant" Linux and OSu as the ultimate operating system have disappeared at the end of the day and are no longer providing comic relief or interesting ambitious debates to Linux users, that other distribution based on Ubuntu and then turned into a FreeBSD distribution is still standing. They're out with an update today and have introduced their own open-source license.

The OS being talked about here for today's after-hours forum discussion fodder is Jabir OS, the operating system that now claims to be an independent fork of FreeBSD and most recently they've been trying to make their own operating system GUI.

Like The Other BSDs, DragonFlyBSD Lags Greatly Behind With Its GPU Support

Filed under
BSD

In this process they've found more success making DragonFlyBSD's kernel more like Linux than trying to adapt the complex, quick-moving drivers to their code-base. "It makes more sense to change the DragonFly kernel to behave like Linux than trying to constantly keep up and change the drivers to use *BSD-specific APIs. In a way I'm porting DragonFly to the drm drivers and not the drivers to DragonFly."

First impressions of PC-BSD 10.0.3

Filed under
Reviews
BSD

All in all, I am impressed with what the PC-BSD team has managed to deliver with their 10.0.3 release. The project has taken on additional polish with the last few releases. The graphical front ends look nicer, some bugs I spotted in previous releases (especially with Life Preserver) have been fixed and the way ZFS integrates with the other PC-BSD tools was very useful to me. There are a lot of great features in this release I would love to see ported to Linux and there were no serious problems during my trial, beyond the video driver issue I was able to work around. I definitely recommend giving PC-BSD a try, it offers a great deal of power in an attractive package.
