Dear list:

I want to introduce me as an user of FreeBSD (new in this list) with a medi=
um experience. I had used this system occasionally since version 4 and alwa=
ys I had prefer it on Linux. However, Debian GNU Linux was my most used sys=
tem in the past because for me it is simpler. Another argument was the long=
 compilation time of certain applications in FreeBSD with old computers. To=
day, the increase in speed of computers permit me use FreeBSD without long =
delays in adapt each machine. I use 12 computers in my classes with scienti=
fic software (R specially). Also, I believe that Linux is beginning to be t=
oo much slow. I am suffering problems with drivers, stability and minor mis=
takes that in previous version of Linux kernel I had not observed. I like t=
he coherence of FreeBSD, the stability and speed of process. This system is=
 incredible fast and robust. I like very much the process of compilation an=
d adaptation to each machine. I expect to learn a lot of this system with t=
his list and the excellent handbook and introduce to my colleagues and stud=
ents in the use of FreeBSD.
