There’s something very exciting about a new installation of an operating system, right? *crickets chirp* Well, there is to me. 🙂 By all rights the configuration, installation of new programs, and inevitable delays should be tedious and and awful, yet somehow I kind of enjoy it. There’s no cruft, no old security threats waiting to rear up and bite you, no programs adopted too quickly and abandoned, no system slowdowns or bloat. I’ve finally gotten a mostly working version of PC-BSD on a computer at work. I’ve never really used a non-Linux UNIX system before, so it’s all very new to me. But so far things are reasonably stable and surprising and different, so I’m going to enjoy this while it lasts.
