390: Commercial Unix Killer
Did Linux kill Commercial Unix, three node GlusterFS setup on FreeBSD, OpenBSD on the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Nano (1st Gen), NetBSD on EdgeRouter Lite, TLS Mastery first draft done NOTES This episode of BSDNow is brought to you by Tarsnap ( Headlines Did Linux Kill Commercial Unix? ( Sales of commercial Unix have fallen off a cliff. There has to be something behind this dramatic decline. Has Linux killed its ancestor by becoming a perfectly viable replacement, like an operating system version of Invasion of the Body Snatchers? Wireguard: Simple and Secure VPN in FreeBSD ( A great article by Tom Jones about setting up Wireguard on FreeBSD *** Setup a Three Node Replicated GlusterFS Cluster on FreeBSD ( GlusterFS (GFS) is the open source equivalent to Microsoft's Distributed Filesystem (DFS). It's a service that replicates the contents of a filesystem in real time from one server to another. Clients connect to any server and changes made to a file will replicate automatically. It's similar to something like rsync or syncthing, but much more automatic and transparent. A FreeBSD port has been available since v3.4, and (as of this post) is currently at version 8.0 with 9.0 being released soon. News Roundup OpenBSD on the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Nano (1st Gen) ( Lenovo has finally made a smaller version of its X1 Carbon, something I’ve been looking forward to for years. NetBSD on the EdgeRouter Lite ( NetBSD-current now has pre-built octeon bootable images (which will appear in NetBSD 10.0) for the evbmips port, so I decided to finally give it a try. I've been happily running OpenBSD/octeon on my EdgeRouter Lite for a few years now, and have previously published some notes including more detail about the CPU. “TLS Mastery” first draft done! ( Beastie Bits A Thread on a FreeBSD Desktop for PineBook Pro ( FOSSASIA Conference - March 2021(Virtual) ( WireGuard for pfSense Software ( NetBSD logo to going Moon ( *** ###Tarsnap This weeks episode of BSDNow was sponsored by our friends at Tarsnap, the only secure online backup you can trust your data to. Even paranoids need backups. ### Producer's Note > Hey everybody, it’s JT here. After our AMA episode where I mentioned I was looking for older BSD Retail Copies, I was contacted by Andrew who hooked me up with a bunch of OpenBSD disks from the 4.x era. So shout out to him, and since that worked so well, I figured I'd give it another shot and ask that if anyone has any old Unixes that will run on an 8088, 8086, or 286 and you're willing to send me copies of the disks. I've recently dug out an old 286 system and I’d love to get a Unix OS on it. I know of Minix, Xenix and Microport, but I haven’t been able to find many versions of them. I've found Microport 1.3.3, and SCO Xenix... but that's about it. Let me know if you happen to have any other versions, or know where I can get them.
