I'm noting a huge increase in the number of groups, magazines, other miscellaneous publications, and now this. Good for you, BSDs! I run FreeBSD happily and always wished they had greater presence and a higher profile. Hope this is a good start and a step in the right direction for them!

i agree. its nice to see the effort; i've always felt the bsd's took a"you'll find us when you're ready" approach, which is double-edged in that many stay with linux or other 'introductory' systems (no baiting intented) due to the knowledge gap

I run OpenBSD; it always just made more sense to me overall than the others. and has great documentation, and clean code styling - its easy to dig into the source to see whats going on with minimal programming experience
