hi all, I'm looking to tinker around with a new OS in my spare time and am still trying to decide between FreeBSD and Linux. I've looked at a few comparisons online but the one posted on the freebsd website is ten years old. Also, many of them seem to go over the head of a standard Windows user. Perhaps someone could point me in the direction of a "general overview" that would be beginner friendly. (I guess we will see how true the "BSD-elitist" claims are by the responses to this post.) In any case, is there any reason why Java is not officially supported for FreeBSD? I see there is a JRE available for download but it makes no guarantees about it working properly claiming that most "major bugs" have been fixed. As a java developer, this is something that concerns me. thanks for your time.
