FreeBSD 5.0 Has Been Released

FreeBSD Release 5.0 is out on the 18th of January, even though the announcement did not go to the press until the 19th. I have not had any success with my previous encounter with FreeBSD 4.7 because of my piece of hardware was not supported properly under the 4.x release. Now the 5.x release is here, hopefully with all the hardware incompatibility fixed, I am about to give it a try again. Time to ditch that rarely used Mandrake 9.0 installation from my hard drive now, and start downloading the ISO from Internode's mirror server...
