This article by Hamza Sheikh details his journey of moving from Linux to FreeBSD. He discusses everything from the ports offered, BSD licensing, choosing from the various BSD distributions, to ZFS. See the link below for the full story.
Before going into why FreeBSD is now my preferred OS for learning UNIX, let us review why I used Linux for a long time.
I started with Red Hat (before RHEL) in the early 2000s; tried to install it on a variety of hardware from CDs found in the back pages of books from the library. There was not a single working install so I gave up. Then came the Ubuntu hype, and around 2006 I built a computer specifically to install and learn it. Everything – except Wi-Fi – worked out of the box. I managed to get Wi-Fi working with ndiswrapper reading a lot of community documentation. I now had a working box and I began my Linux journey.

Next, David Carlier will introduce you to “Kernel and Syscalls”. We would also like to share with you the first module of David’s online course “Developing FreeBSD Kernel Modules”. We took down this course from the web page, because materials were not completed. But the ones we have are very good and we would like to share them with you. If you are interested in learning “How to Upgrade OpenBSD and Build a Kernel”, you have to take a look at Bob Cromwell’s article. You will love it!

In the end, as always, is Rob’s column and his point of view on the Panama Papers leak. What do you think about it? Has your country been mentioned in the many articles that have come out?
We would like to highly recommend you take a look at our online courses, especially if you liked the first module of “Developing FreeBSD Kernel Modules”. We have three more online courses that you can still join and one that is slowly being prepared ;)
