FreeBSD 8.0

I've been waiting with baited breath for this to come out of it's RC cycle, and now it's finally here.

I deployed a few RC1, 2 and 3 copies as test platforms doing minor tasks, and was impressed with the snappiness of the OS in general. I really feel there is a better networking stack underneath the system now.

With 8.0 out, it's just a simple matter to use

freebsd-update -r 8.0-RELEASE upgrade

follow the instructions, two reboots, and you're done.

I'm liking it more and more as the years go on. Glad I found BDSi years ago, which started me on the BSD route instead of being pulled into one of the many Linux camps.
