I am one of the most junior members on this list, but I can tell you
that your post in its current format is not likely to get much
feedback. Here is what I think you questions mean and what I think the
Question: Is it available for my XP? (translated "Is it available for
my Windows XP machine?)
Answer: In short, yes. Your Windows XP machine is an x86 PC. This
list is for the PowerPC (i.e., Macintosh & similar) port of FreeBSD.
Please see http://www.freebsd.org and look for x86-related information.
Question: What peripherals are supported?
Answer: Lots of them; checking http://www.freebsd.org/ports/index.html
will give you an idea of the available applications for FreeBSD, which
may in turn give you an idea of which peripherals are supported. It's
really too broad of a question to address.
Queestion: How vulnerable to hackers is it?
Answer: Much, much less than your XP.
Question: Would it be suitable for a new organization?
Answer: It depends. If the new organization is composed of mostly
Windows users, there would be a bit of a learning curve involved.
I am forwarding your question to the FreeBSD Questions list, which is
a more appropriate location for this post.
