Default Hi, I am new here

Hello, I just wanted to introduce myself in the forum, I have been a user of gnu / linux for years, but I have seen that the direction of this one has changed a lot, so I have switched part of my machines to BSD systems, in a machine I use Freebsd and in a laptop use TrueOS along with openrc manjar with dual boot.

It is surprising me how freebsd works, everything is where it should be, I was used in gnu / linux to pulseaudio, and to see the simple way in which fbsd manages the audio interfaces I was very pleased, I would like to learn more about These systems and in the future use only BSD systems.

One of the reasons I am reacted to using linux is the current "init" systemd, which terrifies me, I am clear that the next server I will mount will be with some bsd system, I like the simple (not easy) manage it.

Greetings.

Welcome,
I don't know about FreeBsd, but sure am happy with OpenBsd,..
guess that is about it for now.

Not so much that is scares me, but I never could make sense of why they
think they need it, everything worked fine with out it.
I am not very advanced technically , and prefer something that "just works",
no "dancing baloney" , that gets messy, and then one has to try to clean up the mess,.....

I am not skilled enough or advanced enough to be constantly trying to clean up the mess made by the "dancing baloney",....especially when it is something that
as far as I know, has no real purpose or need.
So any way, OpenBsd has everything I need, and does not require me to install all sorts of junk that I don't need, nor waste a bunch of time trying to remove all the unwanted junk,..... clean and simple.
We don't live on "bread and meat and potatoes", here, but Corn Tortillas,Beans and Rice", are the main thing. Oh and coffee, and tobacco,...gotta have them.

Welcome.

I think some OS are just completely (short term) focused in the pursuit of quickly adding functionality, without considering the consequences.

NetBSD is my preference of the 3 big ones. I have one running right now with hosted Inferno.

Welcome. You'll find a lot of knowledgeable people (not me, but there are lots) and nice people as well (I like to think I'm one of those). Most of the folks here seem to fit both categories.
