Dear pc-bsd forums members,
I'm currently an archlinux user, I've seen that bsd may be more suited for me than linux even if it maybe harder, I have only seem a basic freebsd installation running, so I'm a bsd virgin ...
Sorry to disturb you but I wanted to know the pros and cons of bsd, what you like and don't about it, so what I may expect or not by using bsd ...
Do you miss some linux softwares that I may want, have particular issues with wine ?
Any information that could be useful, would be greatly liked, you have the blank card for that !!!
Is there any user groups that may help me to begin like on linux ???
I would also know what will work or not out of my current used hardware,
just tell yes for out of the box, maybe for others and no only if you're sure that don't work ...
I will use mainly an emachines em350 netbook, a yagi antenna with a zydas1211-rw chipset, usb keys, usb card reader with sd card, hauppauge wintv pvr usb2 tv tuner, logitech quickcam messenger webcam, ipod video 3g, usb gamepad, xbox1 gamepad, usb microphone, canon powershot A300, usb headset, usb phone, guitar hero 2 xbox 360 xplorer guitar and 2 ddr dance mats ...
