Trying to figure out what the best OS is for me and my uses.
I'm currently researching operating systems. I'm trying to find the best one for my wants and needs.
I'm currently using FreeBSD. Anyone with FreeBSD experience? Why choose Linux over FreeBSD?
Opening the question to all, why do you use Ubuntu Linux?
Please avoid this kind of conversation, haha:
"Linux is teh_best!"
"No,THE BSD IS BEST!!!!!!!!!!1"
I have used Ubuntu, but without much forethought. I want to be smart in my decision making. I understand Ubuntu is pretty much ready-to-go out of the box, but FreeBSD isn't. (As in, FreeBSD requires installing a windows management system, Xorg, etc.)
I like Ubuntu for that, but I like FreeBSD because:
- It's highly customizable.
- Neat and clean structure.
- Well-documented handbook.
Not saying Ubuntu is worse than FreeBSD. Everyone has their specific needs. What works for one may not work for the next person. Hah.
Next, this regards Ubuntu's license. When must I pay if using Ubuntu Linux?
Thank you for any help, even directing me to the right forum thread(s), documents, websites.
Sorry if this thread repeats other threads.
