Last week, I picked up an old Dell computer from Sports Tours and loaded FreeBSD on it. It was a pretty easy install, but I am still getting familiar with it. The ports system is pretty nice and is what some Linux distributions are based on. My biggest problem is getting Java to run on it. I have compiled a version of the JVM, but I haven’t had a chance to really try it. I should be able to get it working.
