Are BSD users allowed here?

Hi all!

I started out with a four-floppy version of Caldera Linux(that's all there was at the time), then went on to using RedHat 4.2.

I stopped my Linux endeavours at RedHat 6 (6.2ish), as I discovered FreeBSD.

People have a favourite distro of Linux - the way it's administered, the tools packaged with it, etc.
My favourite 'distro' just so happens to be a completely different OS...;-)

I specialise in web-application development, and have a few projects on the go:

Hopefully I can learn a few things from this forum, as well as answer people questions when I can!

There is a BSD forum somewhere here, so I believe you are welcome

Welcome to LQ, BSD users are definitely allowed! A dedicated BSD forum already exists as reddazz mentioned. Check it out -- J.W.

The 'jail' feature of FreeBSD has just opened up some real possibilities for what I do - being able to create virtual servers on one machine(without emulation software - it's built in), and allowing people to have their own 'root' password, their own packages, web servers, etc...fantastic!

Linux has a long way to go to catch up...;-)
