I have the lastest snapshot running and am very impressed . I did install on
it's own HD as I find a forced reset on BSD system can scramble the HD and a
simple fdsk will not necessarily fix the problem for another OS .
The Goods :
- checked boxes for the installer - no more wiping out grub at 3:00 in the
- very , very fast - even with Compiz running , which works great
- nice program selection on install
- open sound , although it has to be specifically enabled in both the system
services and mixer menus
- included ports
- finding fastest cvsup now works , although source failed to install off the
- nice artwork during install , boot , and on the desktop . More wallpapers
would be nice - check out RoFreeSBIE .
- Kmail setup is much improved
- a DVD iso would be quicker and cheaper than two cds . Plus you could include
Gnome lite , which works better in FreeBSD than any other OS for me .
- fluxbox for even more speed - nice
- It would be really nice to see some more game PBIs ie. Doom3 , Quake4 , and
I'm hoping beyond hope for Quake wars .
