I mean, like literally weeks after I install it even!

Gotta track down whatever functional X config it generated and take that with me.

It kind of looks like lots of the iXsystems-adjacent stuff is kind of sputtering out. I don’t get how Trident, which (according to wikipedia) was the de-facto child of PC-BSD is switching to Linux, I would think iXsystems would have some interest on at least forcing a name change if it’s not going to be FreeBSD/TrueOS-based any longer. The TrueOS blog is silent for over a year, feels like maybe forking FreeBSD as opposed to helping to pkg-ify the OS was not fruitful?

On the whole, whatever you want to call the pile of stuff running on my garage computer, it’s much more stable and efficient than I expected. 16GB of RAM and with both Firefox and Chrome active (and ZFS doing its ZFS memory-gobbling thing) and I’ve still got gigs upon gigs free.
