It appears that FreeBSD 10.0-RELEASE is now available. I really like some of the highlighted features. In particular:
GCC is no longer installed by default on architectures where clang(1) is the default compiler.
I like the sound of that. Get rid of as much GPL code on the base install as possible! clang(1) is honestly a better compiler.
make(1) has been replaced with bmake(1), obtained from the NetBSD Project.
Naturally, I would support anything NetBSD-related. But the truth is that
bmake is simpler and easier to understand than gmake. I will never learn
$^. On the other hand, I will always remember
Great job, FreeBSD-ers!comments powered by Disqus
