This one is just for fun. I’ve been using FreeBSD off and on since the late 90’s when a good friend, who has since passed, introduced me to the operating system.
Recently, for personal reasons, I’ve decided to move away from the big IT providers and install FreeBSD on my primary desktop for personal use. Just so it’s clear, I still use the operating system my client uses for work, but for my own personal desktop and coding projects, I’ve decided to once again install and run FreeBSD.
This post is not a tutorial, but let’s take some time to look at using this “Unix-like” operating system for real-world situations, such as developing Java applications for fun and profit.
