KfreeBSD Overview
Jul 28, 2011 - 3:30 AM - by Kernel_Killer
Of course, I had to run KfreeBSD through the mill before really considering it. So, for those of you with some interest in this distribution.....

KFreeBSD Back to Stay
Jul 25, 2011 - 5:00 PM - by Kernel_Killer
In the past year, without much announcing; Debian has been going full force with their distributions. The one that sticks out the most, is their resurrection of KFreeBSD.

May 30, 2008 - 1:35 PM - by Kernel_Killer
After our switch from two different servers, and later realized that new members could not register, we are finally starting to grow once again.

Aside from the spam-bots (which will be fixed soon), our total number of active members has doubled in the past month. Let's hope that this continues, and keep posting away. :)

[tools] The Depenguinator, version 2.0
Jan 29, 2008 - 10:30 AM - by bmw
Colin Percival writes ...

"In December 2003, I wrote a script for remotely upgrading a linux system to FreeBSD. I gave it a catchy name ("depenguinator", inspired by the "Antichickenator" in Baldur's Gate), announced it on a FreeBSD mailing list and on slashdot, and before long it was famous. Unfortunately, it... [Read More]
