Lumina Desktop Environment, from the same folks who bring you PC-BSD, has finally hit its version 1.0.0 mark. Notable features of this version are a completely customizable interface, simple application shortcuts, multiple monitor support, single configuration of initial settings, and many more. The full list of changes are in the link below.
After roughly four years of development, I am pleased to announce the first official release of the Lumina desktop environment! This release is an incredible realization of the initial idea of Lumina – a simple and unobtrusive desktop environment meant for users to configure to match their individual needs. I hope you all enjoy it, and I look forward to working with all of you on the next iterations of this desktop!

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.
