"Can a previously devout Penguinista find true happiness in the guise of a little red daemon??"

"When we last visited the subject of FreeBSD, I was happily computing along in version 3.4 on my primary work computer. I've continued to do so until this last week, when my disks arrived from the FreeBSD mall."

"...At the risk of sounding like a zealot, I will say that FreeBSD 4.0 is faster that any operating system I have ever had on any of my computers. This is not hyperbole or just upgrade fever talking here - the machine boots quicker and the programs I have loaded - like Applixware - just seem to pop up without delay. The developers mention on the FreeBSD homage that the virtual memory system has been worked over - and if this is the reason for this impressive improvement in speed, I am all for it."
