Why not ZFS by default?
Images are compressed before distribution. I assume that compression is very effective for:
non-used space (free, never used) in file systems
non-used swap space.
Why is there so little free space in the file system for the base OS?
Why is so little of the disk given...
I noted that virtual machines images are available from https://www.FreeBSD.org/where.html, so wanted to use one of them in VMWare Workstation Player to no avail. None of them has the .vmdk file extension for VMWare.
Could someone please explain to me how any of the images could be used...
