The following points may be inspected :

Blue-Ray RW ?

burncd is not used any more .

6.3. Where can I get CDE for FreeBSD?

CDE become open source ( LGPL ).

9.2. How do I move my system over to my huge new disk?
9.3. Will a "dangerously dedicated" disk endanger my health?
9.6. Why can I not edit the disk label on my ccd(4)?

Requires some rewrite with respect do bsdinstall , because sysinstall is
not used any more in new
distributions .

11.7. What is a virtual console and how do I make more?
11.8. How do I access the virtual consoles from X?

Application with KMS effects ?
