The read was rather fascinating, I remember being referenced to MINIX somewhere years ago when I first used Linux and I was probably researching Linus T. Have any of you used it? What do you make of it? I'd quite like to give it a try. I'm downloading it as we speak, I'm excited to see how fast this system boots up and shuts down having read the wikipedia.

I was just downloading it with youtube downloader client less than a minute ago. Freaky shit xD

It's pretty easy to set up, it's pretty limited though. I don't think I'll be using this outside virtualbox. I'm going back to OpenBSD and if I fuck that up i'll just stick with FreeBSD.

Did you set up pkgsrc?
Robby
No I just used pkgin out of the box as described on first boot.

Pkgsrc gives you access to a few neat applications on minix. I was able to run X with fluxbox a year or so ago.
Robby
I will be sure to do that, I have MINIX, OpenBSD and FreeBSD set up and updated. All in VM's as I cannot run FreeBSD 8.3+ on this HDD. I'll be buying a new one next week and I'll probably have FreeBSD or OpenBSD alongside MINIX as it seems pretty cool.

EDIT - I'm setting up pkgsrc right now.

Fun! What's are you going to run next? Haiku? Plan 9?
Robby
I had never even heard of either of those but i'll read some wiki on them now. My internet has been god awful these past few days at around 60kbps.
