    I like BSD a lot too, ran my bbs off it for several years and ran like an absolute champ. It's seems like apple likes to take stuff and force their tools like xcode to even compile simple programs. Reminds me a lot like microsoft to tell the truth. But they are a company and have to protect their interests i supose. Just how it works.

    Whoa. You ran a BBS on BSD, also? Mine's running on OBSD 5.6. I thought I was the only one who had done that recently. ;)

    Ya BSD was a great test bed for checking code. Bascially i started in windows and hated it, so i move to linux with alot more freedom and posix which is more crossplatform friendly accross linux, bsd, osx etc.. all the good server os's.. :) Developing in linux, then moving the code over to compile on BSD was great for catching any issues that might not have shown up so easily as some distrobutions can be more forgiving then others. After a couple years
    of doing that, i moved my system over to it and ran on there for several years. I retired that machine when i got a new desktop but keep BSD in a
    VM.. and just recently moved my softare over to ARM on the PI/2 which is pretty decent for running a BBS on. BSD was rock solid though, i would leave that thing up for months with the only issues ever being when the power went out. hehe
