Thank you for these warm words. I was about to do it a long time ago, to go to BSD land. When the twelfth version of FreeBsd came out, i made the final decision. Merry Christmas && Happy New Years, Nili!

to go to BSD land

After Jessie, I moved over to OpenBSD and have no regrets whatsoever. Much more prefer the Unix-like style, never really took to systemD.

I can't say anything specific about this system, because I haven't tried it and I think on my hardware it won't work in the near future because it doesn't support my graphics card (Nvidia). But I have read a lot about OpenBSD. Many praise it.

I removed my nvidia card to revert to onboard Radeon/ATI. Happy to forward time just avoid nvidia (only purchase hardware that works with OpenBSD). Inclined to avoid Intel as well.

In keeping with this thread ... OpenBSD, cwm, audacious ....

Why stop with Intel? The entire x86 architecture is garbage, IMO :mrgreen:

Power9 ftw!

I'm loving OpenIndiana, zfs is awesome and the boot environments seem magical compared to the crude hacks I engineered with btrfs on Linux.

The only problems are that the touchpad on my X201 is recognised as a mouse (so I can't use edge scrolling) and FF is old (ESRv52.9) but otherwise it's very polished and runs well on my hardware.

They even have an NVIDIA blob :o

EDIT: that's prstat(1M) in the foremost terminal: a very useful process monitor:

Tried the LiveDVD, very sluggish, didn't pick up my network hardware, initial default root password was opaque.

I think it's "openindiana" :)

Strange that your experience wasn't positive, I think their drivers come from OpenBSD and that runs well on your box :?

I do get a thrill out of seeing the SunOS message at start up and all the Solaris specific command line tools are just gorgeous, I love it.

Back on topic with my dwm desktop everybody's sick of by now:

EDIT: check the graphical corruption in the panel, not sure why that happens sometimes, very strange.

As I am contemplating moving to either FreeBSD or Devuan completely. FreeBSD reminds of Woody or Sarge.
