I've only been using FreeBSD for about ~2 years, the thing i really
like about FreeBSD is the stability of the configuration system.
Placement of configuration files and startup scripts make life easier
in daily administration.
The things i'm using FreeBSD for?
# Gateway Router
# Squid Proxy cache
# Web Server (Apache 2.2)
#> Wordpress Blog
# Primary/Secondary DNS (Bind)
# PXE Boot machine
# Syslog Server
# Firewall (very much in love with PF)
I'm not really confident with updates yet, still learning so yet to
push a FreeBSD machine into production.
