Do you use BSD?

$ portinstall sysutils/bsdstats

India is #6 with more dfly users than fbsd. Hmm…

Happy Onam 2006

Good lunch at Little Home, Koramangala. For once am happy with the sadhya in Bangalore. Little places serve better food than big fancy places. 🙂

DragonFly BSD on Qemu

Woke up this morning to see http://leaf.dragonflybsd.org/mailarchive/users/2006-09/msg00010.html


Big question: after all the work that will go into the clustering, other than scientific research, what will the average user be able to use such advanced capability for?

DragonFly BSD is a fork of FreeBSD 4.8 which has some nice and interesting ideas on how to build large scalable cluster systems. Since I work on such cluster systems every day with the inherent pain in managing these, dfly developements give me hope.

So here I am building dfy -current under Qemu on FreeBSD -current. 🙂

BTW: Check out TCM's new “Drive” mix created for the Nike/iPod promotion. The dub of Roadhouse Blues is pretty uplifting. Is it just me or does 70s rock sound better with break beat?
