We have just decided to open and enter the American market a new – totally devoted to FreeBSD magazine.
To meet your expectation, I would like to invite you to active cooperation in creating new magazine.

What about the profil of magazine? Have you got any special themes, you would like to read about?

What do you think about regular sections such as:

  1. What’s new (about latest-released FreeBSD-related products, applications)
  2. Get started! (theory through practice! – that is how to install, configure and work with different FreeBSD-baced programs, applications)
  3. How-Tos
  4. Admin
  5. mms (Multimedia Section)
  6. Tips & Trics
  7. Let’s Talk


  1. says

    Waste of time imho, there is e.g. a German magazine, freeX, who covers all sort of *nix, especially *BSD. But it’s rather nonsense to cover

    FreeBSD only nowadays.

  2. Andrew George says


    think its a good Idea and you should go for it… if you could get the word around the FreeBSD and PC-BSD and Dektop-BSD Forums, it could work. Also ask for

    donations… Donations are always good!!!

    GOOD LUCK!!@@

    A good idea.

    Subsections for NetBSD (portability) and OpenBSD (security) should be added.

    Yeah, only BSD mag, what a great idea!
    Linux ok but we always have some Debian stuff or redhat based articles.
    I have enougth linux

    stuff in my job.
    I wonder a BSD mag, eventually with slack and MacOS articles.

    BSD got to be represented, i started linux in my own with magazines, i

    hope it could be the same on FreeBSD and other BSD, i use again mac and debian because i’m not so good on bsd to work only on this on product but i hope it


    I’m agry, BSD mag is good solution.
