Hi, they sent me here since bsd forums is getting it up the butt by spammers
I have a desktop computer that I dont use and a inspiron 1521 laptop with 2gb ram and a 150gb hdd that dual boots ubuntu and vista.
I dont know much about bsd, but I wanted to try a unix OS out ( I guess macOS, bsd and solaris are the most used one?).Solaris was my first choice since I guess its the more "pure unix os?" out of the three, then I looked into mac os x and I guess its hard to install it enless you have a mac or mac hardware.So for a while I said forget it and then a friend told me to try bsd because its like a "cross between linux and unix?" and he said I might be able to run it live off a usb or cd.So is there a varient of bsd that I can install on a usb or cd/dvd to run live so I dont have to install anything?Either that or I could try to install it on my external hdd but I hear thats hard to do.I just want to explore what bsd is all about and perhaps one day Ill install it(Im actually looking into buying a eee pc or something just so Ill have a alternative computer).So what are my options here?You guys are the bsd experts.
