hey im using Linux right now on my laptop, ill be getting an upgraded desktop, i was wondering if PCBSD is any good and a good platform to try CX products on.
For a total n00b, who knows only linux as far as any *nix system goes, is PCBSD the way to go or should i try FreeBSD?
I think perhaps *BSD builds are for the most part unsupported right now.
AFAIK you'll fair much better using crossover on linux and/or Mac osx.
As far as *nix type systems go, the BSDs are as unlike linux as you're
ever likely to get - there's nothing wrong with that, and perhaps the
best way to example this is to install a BSD and find out for yourself.
They might look the same, use a lot of the same software linux systems
use, but the actual workings of a BSD system are much different.
We're rebels. We're misfits. But mostly, we're software liberators. And we're very, very good at what we do. We have to be. Lots of developers work with open source, but only a tiny fraction of those are good enough to get software that was designed for one platform to work on another one. We invented CrossOver software - a unique approach to cross-platform compatibility that does not require dual-boot or another OS license. We launched PortJump to help app and game developers broaden their market beyond Windows® users. And we launched ExecMode to help organizations solve really ugly technical challenges.
