FreeBSD 7.2 Review: Improved Virtualization

,----[ Quote ]
| FreeBSD is just plain old good UNIX with rock solid networking stack. It is 
| quite popular amongst hosting companies, ISPs, portals (such as Yahoo) and a 
| few large financial institutions because of its reliability, robustness and 
| performance.   
| 
| A new version of the FreeBSD is scheduled for release next week (4-May-2009). 
| A beta 2 was made available for download few weeks ago for final round of 
| testing before the official launch

It works! Sort of …

,----[ Quote ]
| On a whim, I installed the latest pre-release release of ReactOS today. I 
| tried it a long time ago and had no luck whatsoever — black screens,  
| nonbooting or just generalized irregular behavior — and so I rarely give it a 
| thought.

,----[ Quote ]
| Naturally we focus mostly on Linux here at TuxRadar HQ, but we keep tabs on
| the wider open source world too. For the last few years we've been intrigued
| by the progress of ReactOS, a free software Windows implementation that could
| one day give Microsoft the chills. Well, ReactOS 0.3.9 is now here, with
| major performance improvements, initial sound support and the latest WINE
| DLLs for improved compatibility. Summary after the break.
