This week’s BSDNow talks about a lot of OpenBSD news, gets into UNIX history, and interviews Kris Moore about FreeNAS/TrueNAS/TrueOS/etc.
All done at the last minute!
Odd batch of links this week.
Your BSD-related fiction book of the week (year? decade?) :’git commit murder‘ is out, set at a (fictional) BSD convention.
More thinking topics than version changes this week, which is interesting.
Michael W. Lucas will be presenting at SemiBUG tomorrow, talking about the OpenBSD web stack.
I measure the success of In Other BSDs by how many different BSD flavors I can reference. This is a good week.
Lots of storage this week.
A lot of the real content this week is buried in the comments, strangely.
Note the end this week of pc98, the most focused of niche platforms.
Done all at the last minute.
Accidental theme this week: books.
This turned into a BSD User Group event list, which makes me happy. There was nothing like that 3 or 5 or whatever years ago.
This week’s BSDNow has extended notes about FreeBSD and lld, the LLVM linker, plus notes on the NetBSD scheduler, OpenBSD changes, and so on. It’s very ecumenical.
There’s always a rush of links after a holiday, as people sit at home and catch up on what they’ve wanted to do.
Much better this week; I actually have links.
I have a pretty significant backlog of links for this week – to the point I had to open a separate browser window to sort out open tabs.
I use italics a lot this week.
