In this article, user Jack Wallen installs UbuntuBSD for the first time and documents his thoughts and offers solutions on the hybrid distribution.
Considering that BSD is far closer to UNIX than is Linux, why would anyone go out of their way to merge it with Ubuntu? Two reasons. First, if you’re a long-time fan of Ubuntu and a long-time hater of systemd, UbuntuBSD might be the “systemd-less Ubuntu” you’ve been looking for. The second reason? Because one of the biggest complaints about BSD is that it’s more complex than it’s Linux relatives. That leads to one simple conclusion: far less usage. Even though BSD is an ideal platform for servers, it winds up little more than a wallflower at prom, watching all the cool Linux kids dancing the night away.
