  • That's nice, though I think DO broke their arm patting themselves on the back so much. You'd think they'd just engineered landing on Mars.

    But hey it's progress. I'll switch my DO Tor relay to FreeBSD...but still waiting for OpenBSD. About half of the original "BSD on DO" request thread was people asking for OpenBSD.

    Now, that would be like landing on mars! VPS providers with OpenBSD templates are really hard to come by. FreeBSD is pretty common nowadays. So what's the problem with OpenBSD then?

    Personally, no.

    My favorite shell is OpenBSD's default, which is ksh. It has all he good stuff from bash without the insane creeping featurism. FreeBSD defaults to csh but OpenBSD doesn't.

    Elsewhere, I use bash or ksh.

    I haven't used a csh-derived shell in 20+ years, since my SunOS 4.1 days. I don't want to learn a different syntax than what I use for shell scripts, and csh programming is considered harmful.

    +1 for FreeBSD

  • For now, I think its only suitable for testing.

    Slower disk speed than Linux because DO disable journaling in order to get DO snapshot/backup to work. Also its UFS by default.

  • Does pkg work for you?

    It's completely non-functional for me:

  • Reimaging the vm fixed it. Odd.
