    Default Netflix Open Connect Network: FreeBSD, Not Linux

    In the good-old days it was news when a company chose Linux, now it's news when it doesn't choose Linux. That's progress.

    Default software raid-1 for linux?

    Hi, I would like to know out if I can add a 2nd SSD as a RAID-1 drive to an already working drive that is not in RAID-1 using something like gmirror?

    Thanks!

    Netfix are just damn fanboys. They mentioned IPv6 which Linux support first. They also want to have additional work:

    As we find and fix stability and performance issues, we're aggressively pushing those changes into FreeBSD so that everyone can benefit from them, just as we benefit from the contributions of the rest of the FreeBSD ecosystem. We're proud to be a part of the community, and look forward to a long-term relationship with FreeBSD.
    You must be proud of being morons.

    Funny fact - DRM-rotten all-proprietary Netflix is a BSD lover. Abuse-friendly OS at its best!
