Linux vs. BSD, What's the Difference?

转载 2007年09月19日 20:19:00

BSD和Linux作为服务器在性能上的比较是论坛上一个无休止的争论。但在桌面上又如何呢? 我并没有真正长期的使用过任何Linux发行版做桌面,但是就目前而言感觉PC-BSD上的软件数量和驱动支持仍让比Linux要稍差。但是PC-BSD无疑以极快的速度在赶上。再加上国内用户还要面对中文字体显示这个老大难问题,两者作为主流桌面操作系统都有很长的路要走。但PC-BSD被iXsystems(一家致力于提供基于FreeBSD系统的服务器软件/硬件提供商,不久前又收购了FreeBSDMall)收购以后获得了很大的商业支持,这是它和其它开源操作系统的很大的一个差别。加上它的FreeBSD内核固有的稳定行和安全性,相信会有不错的发展。

PC-BSD for Ubuntu Users

Ubuntu is known as Linux for Human Beings, because it's driven by the philosophy that "software should be available free of charge, software tools should be usable by people in their local language and despite any disabilities, and people should have the freedom to customize and alter their software in whatever way they see fit" (Ubuntu Documentation).

PC-BSD, on the other hand, "has been designed with the casual computer user in mind. Installing the system is simply a matter of a few clicks and a few minutes for the installation process to finish. Hardware such as video, sound, network, and other devices will be auto-detected and available at the first system startup. Home users will immediately feel comfortable with PC-BSD's desktop interface, with KDE 3.5 running under the hood. Software installation has also been designed to be as painless as possible, simply double-click and software will be installed" (pcbsd.org).

Having used both operating systems extensively, PC-BSD is the one I recommend and the one I install in desktop environments. If you've used Ubuntu before, but haven't tried PC-BSD, give it a try. The increase in responsiveness (i.e., everything seems to just run faster) and ease-of-use will surprise you.

In this article, I'll compare Ubuntu 7.04 (Fiesty Fawn) with the (as of this writing) upcoming release of PC-BSD 1.4.
