FreeBSD 9.1 & Zorin OS 6.1

Article from Issue 148/2013

Zorin OS 6.1 and FreeBSD 9.1

The Zorin operating system was created for Windows users who want to transition easily to Linux. Zorin includes a Look Changer program that allows you to change the user interface between the look and feel of Windows 7, XP, and Vista, or even Mac OS X, Ubuntu Unity, or Gnome 2. With Zorin, you can operate in a familiar environment without worrying about malware, viruses, and other security threats.

FreeBSD is a Unix-like operating system with more than 30 years of development. FreeBSD spans use scenarios from desktop, to server, to embedded systems. Version 9.1 comes with many improvements, including support for mounting devfs(5), nullfs(5), and ZFS inside a jail; a 10%-15% performance improvement to CPU load balancing of simultaneous multithreading when the number of threads is less than the number of logical CPUs; and support for the Intel Sandy Bridge microarchitecture and Atmel SAM9XE family of microcontrollers.
