Well, the new job is gonna have a bucket full of FreeBSD servers. It’s been a while since I tinkered with FBSD, so it’ll be a challenge. To prepare for that challenge, I’ve decided to convert Draccus (my workstation) to BSD. The following is a list of hurdles I’ll need to surpass before I start in April:

  • get draccus up and running
  • get KDE up and running
  • get Gimp working
  • get my Wacom Graphire 3 tablet working
  • get my Logitech Quickcam working
  • get my m-audio keyboard working
  • get rosegarden recording again
  • burn a cd-rw
  • burn a dvd+rw

I’m presuming I’ll have no problems with my Nvidia 6600 GT, Audigy 4 soundcard, or other common hardware. With the problems I’ve been having with linux as of late (specifically draccus) there is a moderate chance I might fully convert from Linux to BSD. If I can accomplish the above list, I will continue using FBSD for one year. The disc is burning now.
