    please share your experience with different hardware

    Hi everyone. A common question from FreeBSD users across desktop, server, and vendors is "which chips, NIC, SSD, WiFi, etc. hardware makers consistently offer good FreeBSD support?" This is a priority for me and a first step is to catalog the hardware makers that DO offer good support so the...

    Solved What are your hardware recommendations for a FreeBSD desktop in 2023?

    Hello everyone, I've recently attempted to get FreeBSD working as my desktop OS, with moderate results (working, but not working great). Most of the problems I faced were related to hardware incompatibilities because I was using hardware that was too new / unsupported. Since I don't want to...

    Best FreeBSD hardware

    I am looking for a GPU that is compatible with FreeBSD and has decent graphical acceleration, any recommendations? I plan for this system to be able to play 1080p 60FPS videos smoothly, it will also have 16GB of DDR4 Ram, and probably a Ryzen 5 3600, thanks.

    My Mouse Scrolling Not Working on 13

    Hi! Recently I've tried freebsd, it is much more awesome than those linux distros, and I think this is what an unix-like OS should actually be. However, I've encounter some problems that are beyond my knowledge: I've install the OS using VirtualBox, and VBox reports that "Mouse Integeration" is...
