by in Friday Distro: PC-BSD on 2014-08-29 15:26 (#2RQW)

I've been running PC-BSD as my main OS since October 2013 starting with the PC-BSD 10.0 preview. Before I installed PC-BSD I was distro-hopping around the Linux universe never quite finding something that felt comfortable (Arch was close, still have an Arch install that is not used much).

Basically I came to PC-BSD (and by extention FreeBSD) mainly for zfs and stayed due to the cohesiveness of the whole system and the great community. BSD Now episode #49 gives a quick tour of the PC-BSD GUI tools, a good place to see PC-BSD in action. After watching the podcast I would suggest checking out the PC-BSD Handbook

100% agree, no comments and send through the "pipe" first.

I like the astronomy stuff I just don't comment much, a thumbs up or thumbs down button to indicate that would be useful for me.

PC-BSD is my choice. But if I had to pick a Linux it would be Debian or Arch.

The links in the article are to OpenBSD's version of OpenSSL, OpenSSL proper is NOT an OpenBSD project (can be found here: The naming is unfortunate. Just to straighten this out, OpenSSH is by OpenBSD.

Now if I was going to pick one group that I would trust to do a proper OpenSSL it would be the OpenBSD group, hoping they do a full on fork and provide a cross-platform version like OpenSSH.
