FreeBSD 9.0-BETA2 Download

FreeBSD 9.0-BETA2 Release

Ken Smith has announced the availability of the second beta of FreeBSD 9.0, more than a month later than planned: "The second beta build of the 9.0-RELEASE release cycle is now available. Note: the location of the FTP install tree and ISOs have changed slightly. What we used for BETA2 reflects a directory structure that would let us fully utilize building and distributing a wider variety of architectures. The new layout does add some extra complexity, so we're actively discussing whether or not to change the layout from previous releases, and if we do change it whether or not to change it this much. What's there now can be viewed as an almost 'worst-case' scenario. It's entirely possible we'll back off and revert to the old layout despite that layout potentially limiting.

About Free BSD

FreeBSD is a UNIX-like operating system for the i386, amd64, IA-64, arm, MIPS, powerpc, ppc64, PC-98 and UltraSPARC platforms based on U.C. Berkeley's "4.4BSD-Lite" release, with some "4.4BSD-Lite2" enhancements. It is also based indirectly on William Jolitz's port of U.C. Berkeley's "Net/2" to the i386, known as "386BSD", though very little of the 386BSD code remains. FreeBSD is used by companies, Internet Service Providers, researchers, computer professionals, students and home users all over the world in their work, education and recreation. FreeBSD comes with over 20,000 packages (pre-compiled software that is bundled for easy installation), covering a wide range of areas: from server software, databases and web servers, to desktop software, games, web browsers and business software - all free and easy to install.
