FreeBSD is a Linux Distribution that I would like to test, currently I work with Ubuntu Distribution. Linux is an operating system that I promote for all computer users because it works efficiently away from errors or bugs. Moreover, Linux is development oriented before to be a plateform where we sell and buy. I work with Ubuntu since 2009 which is the first time I knew Open Source and Free Software. A lot of Operating Systems are rising now, I wonder which one will be the most used. Teaching how to work with a microprocessor is the first step for a good Operating System. I hope with FreeBSD we can learn more about microprocessor, I know FreeBSD is famous to be a work of University of California in Berkeley. I wish to have all engineers working together for better kernel. I need to see my favorite movie!
