I am very interested in obtaining FreeBSD as an alternative to the 
Windows/DOS (in)operating system I am currently using. Obviously, the 
CD-ROM from Walnut Creek CD-ROM is the most practical method for 
obtaining this release. It is my understanding, however, that FreeBSD 
version 2.1 will be available in June. What is unclear to me is if it 
will be generally available on CD-ROM that soon. I am undecided about 
purchasing the current version, installing and configuring it, and then 
trying to upgrade it next month, or just waiting for the next release.

Would you be so kind as to advise if version 2.1 will be available as 
an upgrade to version 2.0, or if I will have to purchase the full OS as 
new. Also, I would like an updated (projected) release date for version 
2.1, if available. I have your catalog, and have scanned the FAQ's, but 
found little concerning the next release, although it's a sure bet to 
be out before Windows 95 (or 96,...97,...).

Your assistance is, as always, most appreciated.

Thomas James
