Why they are using Mac OS X ™ and Windows® for presentation?
They could not find a man who can install FreeBSD with nice window manager? :D
 
I was hoping that some of the OpenBSD presentations would have been uploaded by now as it looks like they're missing from all of the streams. This is what was presented from the OBSD side: http://undeadly.org/cgi?action=article&sid=20160617141448

I can't confirm or deny this, but apparently a lot of FreeBSD devs don't run FreeBSD on the desktop and run OS X instead.

There's definitely a lot of MacBooks in that crowd.

80%+ attendees were FreeBSD guys/developers. The current posted videos is a true testimony how many FreeBSD developers really use FreeBSD on their desktops. I believe all missing streams will be posted within next 2 weeks. wblock@ was giving out stickers to people who had only FreeBSD running on their laptops. He probably tell you exact percentage of FreeBSD who eat their own dog food. One of those stickers ended up on the Hanning Brower's laptop as a practical joke which brought $100 toward charity causes.


All OpenBSD people (including the once who were not talking about OpenBSD per se like myself) were running OpenBSD on their laptops. 3 out of 4 NetBSD who attended the conference run NetBSD on their laptops. One NetBSD guy run Linux on his laptop because he is doing lot of audio/video editing at home. He runs NetBSD at work for living. There were no DragonFly BSD people this year in attendance unless you count me (my home file servers runs DragonFly).

I made 96 of the FreeBSD dogfood stickers. The condition of getting one was running FreeBSD natively on a notebook at the conference or on a desktop system at home. After the devsummit, I only had two stickers left. One was auctioned off for charity, and the other went to Peter Wemm.

There was a much higher number of people running FreeBSD natively this year. It is almost certainly due to the X11 update to support Haswell and Broadwell chipsets.
