The FreeBSD Project has announced the availability of a FreeBSD.org hosted community discussion forum. Personally, I’m quite pleased with this as I prefer forums over mailinglists. Unless you use gmail or an email program that is able to keep threads together, mailinglists can be quite “messy”.
There are already a couple of FreeBSD related forums, such as bsdnexus and daemonforums, but hopefully this will become FreeBSD’s main forum, although I’m sure there will be those out there that prefer the forum they’ve been using for years.
The FreeBSD project is finally, after much work, pleased to announce the availability of an official FreeBSD web based discussion forum. It is our hope that this forum will serve as a public support channel for FreeBSD users around the world and as a complement to our fine mailing lists.
Many thanks for everybody who emailed me regarding this.
