There it is, Linux Identity Kit with FreeBSD 7.0 on DVDs has just been published.
FreeBSD is often thought of as the perfect operating system for networking tasks, since it's very robust and achieves great performances. FreeBSD can be used in a great variety of settings: servers, embedded systems, workstations, etc.
Two DVDs come with this magazine. They each contain FreeBSD 7.0. The first disc is meant to be used with computers equipped with a x86 compatible processor (Pentium, Athlon...), also called i386 compatible sometimes. This version, called the 32-bit version, will work on any machine, so it's the one you should use in the vast majority of cases. The second DVD is destined to 64-bit systems, or, more exactly, to AMD64 compatible computers (Opteron, Athlon64, EM64T). If you want to use all the capabilities of your 64-bit processor, this second DVD is the right one for you.
More than 17500 third-party applications are available and ready to be installed: OpenOffice.org, KDE, GNOME, Firefox, Apache, MySQL, etc. In addition, most of the binaries compiled for GNU/Linux systems can be run under FreeBSD without any modification.
