After 7 years FreeBSD was my default desktop OS. I have a Dell XPS 8700:

                   -`
                  .o+`                 x7cc@naruto

Why:

  • I really can't keep two different OSes at my development station.
  • Docker running... Solutions as VMs are not interesting for me.
  • Tools like Google Chrome, Slack client, Krita, Telegram, Spotify etc.
  • Plan9port without fixing: INSTALL, 9p, 9c, 9term, auxstats etc.
  • Bleeding on the edge with the last versions of software.

I really miss csh, for now pacman -S tcsh was enough for my ~/bin/ scripts. For now, I am using Bash as a long time ago.

Things that I have keep untouched:

I will try again to post frequently. :-P
