- And I bet you'll have the stupid guts to tell me all those sites are fake because you're omniscient. Oh and please change your surname to PolheANUS, you don't deserve Polhemus 😂😂😂😂48w

- Thank you Mr. Torvallds. With Linux, I have been able to throw Widnows out the window.47w
- FreeBSD has always been short on desktop apps. Mac is expensive, and not so hacker-friendly. Linux is better for many things.47w
- I don't know if that's true but it wasn't always so. There's also hardware support which has always been better in Linux47w
- shutdown G Ports Services and Protocols - Port 1309 tcp/udp information, official and unofficial47w
- I'm sure I could have used any number of Unix based systems. For years I have repeatedly tried to get a Unix like OS. I want to learn more about how the OS works. Getting Unix was a problem. I didn't have the money to get a copy of it.
In the old days of DOS, I was doing every thing from low level formatting MFM drives, making the prompt into a menu screen, and getting Windows 3.1 running smooth as glass. When I heard about Linux, I wanted it. And as an extra added bonus, it's free. I dove in to Linux head first, only to discover that all my DOS experience wasn't enough to keep up with Linux. I bought over 20 books on Linux, but none of them gave me a bare basic starting place. I found a copy of The Linux Bible, at the Toronto Research Library. I've read and re-read chapters until I fully understood what the commands were about. There is still the how and why to use them that I don't yet understand.
My fingers are getting sore from all this typing. Thank you for your time, and have a mighty pleasant day.47w
- I am lucky I can use linux at my job, shit is I am missing a terminal45w
- +Bill Pohemus face it: FreeBSD wasn't attractive to enough people and never made it to the big leagues. Linux attracted far more support and now it's everywhere. Even in the city, a supermajority of the banking and trading systems run on Linux now. As for future desktop, mobile, and wearable and IoT platforms, a lot of those already appearing now (eg anything prototyped on raspberry pi) are based on Linux. I guarantee none of them will be based on *BSD. It's a niche platform most suited to ISP server farms and not a lot else.45w
