Heh, Slackware solid. Good one.
But seriouslly it is a little bit of a shame that the *BSDs tend to get overshadowed by Linux. They are quite technically excellent and have a few advantages over Linux (though they also have areas where they are lagging). My personal take on the whole thing is that for mission criticle servers FreeBSD & NetBSD should be concidered along with the better Linux distros. For desktop and workstations, no. And for Firewalls... OpenBSD. Period.

Lord, a pissing contest on who's used the anchentest technology. I used to be able to read uninterpreted punch cards but that's a skill that doesn't have much use these days. Then there were the "computers" where you programmed then by changing the wires on the circuit board... That's probably where I get my dislike of HW from.
If I actually could spell I'd have spelled it right in the first place.
