Today I decided to install and run FreeBSD. I had some CD-RW my friend lend me with the 4.8 release.
I stole almost half of the disk space dedicated to my family Windows. 4.5G to be precise. They won't need and sure is a waste give 4.5G to Windows to use as swap.
Anyway, I liked it. First, I think the installation was easier than I expected.
Despite my winmodem, everything went smooth. I think I'll have a hard time to find drivers to the modem, but that's OK. Everything else is working.
In general, I liked it. The only bad thing is, after a while using mainly Red Hat, you get used to their spoils, like service among other things, which makes other UNIX systems a little harder... :)
