Nice try, normie larper.
OpenBSD is best BSD. Objectively speaking. >inb4 anti-OpenBSD-pasta retard
> now run by an incompetent core team > random regressions from barely tested patches > Apple hired all the actual decent devs away ages ago You can give FreeBSD to a core team of monkeys and it would take 20 years for it to become a mess like GNU + Linux.

True, but it's unusable as a daily driver

I must sadly agree. I'd use it over (Arch) Linux as my daily desktop for it's stability, cleanliness, simplicity and security, but it's missing a lot of packages which are vital for my workflow and I'm too dumb to port. Also my laptop speakers make a weird farting noise when I turn the machine off. That said the installation is insanely easy and network config is clean and simple, unlike Linux. Also config files aren't spattered everywhere. Who knows, maybe they've pledge-d this .gif for maximum comfort and security.

Linux is one single unified kernel that people contribute upstream to. The BSDs are just angry neckbeards forking because of silly SJW policies.
>no more system component variety >defaults suck and you're stuck with them now
if I only use emacs in a terminal along with EXWM, how much stuff would I be missing moving to OpenBSD? If I occasionally need to run Firefox does OpenBSD have some type of xserver?
> variety Try replacing systemd with another init in a modern Lincucks distro and watch it crumble. Le bazaar philosophy is stupid and you should be ashamed that Linux doesn't have sane defaults
>Free, Open and Net are distros This website is 18+
You should be fine.
>does OpenBSD have some type of xserver? Yes.
How do I learn bsd? Is the handbook all that's needed?
I can swap from OpenRC to systemd and back very easily on Gentoo.
In my experience, using the internet on OpenBSD is crap. If you're very knowledgeable of networking, you may be able to make it better, but for me it was slow and finicky. I guess thats the power of paranoia
I'd just do an install in a VM and play around, that's the fun way to try new distos/OSs
>It's just another egotistical megalomaniac fork for barely any reason. It's only OK when corporations do it
Who's the nigger tranny spic who's been shilling BSD here lately?
That exact statement was proof positive OP is a moron who doesn't know what they're talking about.
>nigger tranny spic in singular We're several nigger tranny spics showing off BSD. Is it for everybody? No, nothing is. Is it for everything? No, nothing is. But if you give it a try you may find a use.
I literally don't have a single reason to choose FreeBSD over Ubuntu. Prove me wrong. Protip: you can't.
Most applications on BSD are ports of Linux applications. Since there's no standard your files are going to be all over the place. Half the shit will either be insanely unstable or will just not work at all because only 3 people on the planet care about BSD as a desktop OS.

it's a pretty good OS but there is absolutely no alps touchpad support and that's the problem with it. if you don't have a thinkpad then no matter what you use there's always going to be something that just doesn't work at all it's slow as hell and runs poor on any hardware. not designed for a dekstop at all unfortunately
>Also my laptop speakers make a weird farting noise when I turn the machine off. top fucking kek this should be a pro instead of a con
freebsd hasn't been good since 7. i'd rather use openbsd and if i really don't have a choice i'll deal with using linux.
I bet you've never tried it though. Keep LARPing
>Linux has the same CoC It adopted cock literally first.
>it's missing a lot of packages which are vital for my workflow and I'm too dumb to port Out of curiosity, which ones?
Sure was easy if you exclude my intentional deviation from a standard setup, as I did not deem it necessary previously. Literally emerge systemd, enable the relevant services to match the OpenRC setup and reboot.

There are FreeBSD distros (closely related forks). You can get most of the benefits by running Alpine Linux.
>now run by an incompetent core team I've been using FreeBSD on-and-off for about fifteen years. A recent version is currently on two home servers - one with a two-disk ZFS mirror; the other with a three-disk ZFS RAIDZ1. I too have noticed some quality control problems. Some of these problems seem bizarre when contrasted with the rest of the system. I imagine the situation as being something like a once nice university that has been overrun by feral street kids.
A type of PnS, or Prohibitive Normative Standard (of behavior). It is a term from the psychology of cults, mind control and brainwashing. It prohibits certain behaviors and sets the social norms in order to force the cult followers into obedience. It's a powerful, big, scarily effective tool of the propagandist and aspiring cult leader.

Fuck yeah! SFW or NSFW? Either/both would be good. BSD-tans don't get nearly enough love compared to other OS-tans, even those for Linux distros.

OpenBSD has TeXlive. No TeX Studio though although there is LyX.
I am pretty sure there is a TeX Live port for OpenBSD, and, I think, Kile. As far as video editing goes, you can use Blender and LiVES, but both are weird. Adb is ported. But there is no VirtualBox, of course.
I've only used kdenlive for video editing. I think the adb pkg is pretty old though.
>FOSS bsd is Open Source, not Free. >BSD the D literally stands for Distribution
Are you actually retarded? >BSD licenses are a family of permissive free software licenses. Microsoft is publishing a lot of Open-but-not-Free Source recently. It's completely different from the BSDs licenses which let you do whatever you want with the code as long as you give attribution and stuff. They as free as in freedom.
Maybe try qemu instead of virtual box. Also you might be able to compile kdenlive from source... I highly doubt you will get far though. I tried running it as a daily driver, but it was just too slow on my x200. I couldn't watch YouTube videos in Firefox on it in 720p. Though my goodness the system was absolutely amazing to work with. Getting my status bar in DWM configured was an absolute breeze compared to Linux.
Why compile kdenlive from source? Just install the package.
