This week’s BSD Now is all history-linked material, which is totally fine by me.
BSD Now this week leads with a link to the Quora article about Mac OS X’s journey to UNIX certification, which you should read if you have not already. There’s more links of course, including one on getting streaming commercial media playing on FreeBSD.
This week’s BSD Now talks about a reoccurring topic for me: how UNIX happened. It links to that Kernighan talk that you should watch, too.
There’s no pun in the title; this week’s BSD Now really links to a browser implementation of UNIX-ish resources. Is it POSIX? Not quite. Is it UNIX? No. Is it Linux? Probably using that as a reference, so it’s a copy of a copy. Still, interesting. There’s other articles too; don’t be distracted by my digression.
This week’s BSD Now leads off with a toolchain name but actually starts listing all the FreeBSD Foundation year-end summaries that came out recently. Plus more links.
No pun for a title, but it’s a good description: BSD Now has an interview of Solene Rapenne, who I’ve linked to about a zillion times in the In Other BSDs posts.
The holiday puns continue with BSD Now doing a reverse interview of the hosts.
I feel like it’s perfect that the first article linked in this week’s BSD Now is for GhostBSD, since this is exactly the right date for that pun.
Advanced ZFS Snapshots
has a literal headline, plus other straightforward articles. No puns, darnit.
This week’s BSD Now talks about OpenBSD and OpenZFS – but not at the same time; don’t misread this.
