BSDNow 057: The Daemon’s Apprentice


This week’s BSDNow has an interview about mentoring with Steve Wills of FreeBSD, the usual array of news.  This week has more small device news than normal – NetBSD on Raspberry Pi and pfSense on a mini-ITX system.  And a mention of my desktop article!  I’m relevant!

Tokyo meeting and Open Network Hardware


I was remiss in not posting this before it happened, but Issac (.ike) Levy of NYCBUG went to Tokyo to talk about the translation efforts for pfSense, on the 17th.  He posted a summary of his talk and slides.

Normally I would be posting this in an “In Other BSDs” Saturday item, but the summary page includes links on Open Network Hardware, which .ike and I talked about at NYCBSDCon.  I wanted to create a separate post for it, but he’s got all the links piled in with his talk summary already.

The hardware I want to see as a real product is the Intel ONP Switch Reference Design.  (PDF)   Having a device that looks like a switch but is actually a normal computer with a lot of network ports – that can run BSD – opens up a huge range of network possibilities.
