Currently, I'm running 6.3-STABLE as my main OS for development and
personal stuff. I'd be more than glad to run -CURRENT on my other hard drive
provided that I can commit (at least indirectly) some of the stuff that, to me,
would be great in FreeBSD. After all, this is what motivates people the most...
Some (not all, and certainly not the most) available at:
In NetBSD too: (currently using 3.1):
A security tool at: (I'm cooking a new version)
Other Unix experience is with Linux & OpenSolaris.
