Great program - a must have. If you go to the website now (as of the 4th of June -8 GMT), it's on a Cobalt machine that may have been rooted, the text "消えました" means "it went out."
4.8 (Apr 4, 2003)
This OS has 99.9 % of everything available in RedHat 9; and more -just use ports. Once you see ports in action, you'll wonder why things aren't done like FreeBSD more often.
You can also set every port to compile with massive CPU optimizations. Only Gentoo offers that.
And if you program, porting your code from FreeBSD is a snap.
This OS is clean, well documented, stable and coherent. If you want a workstation, try:
/usr/ports/misc/instant-workstation/ ; make install
bash cdrecord dos2unix Emacs fetchmail gsgrip gimp gv gpg ispell tkde mkisofs mount_smbfs mutt mozilla xtset xmms xv
It gets the tarballs and compiles them for you, or it can get the precompiled packages, and install them.
This is what FreeBSD gives you; freedom from RPM's provided by vendors in low optimization forms, freedom to use free software AS THE AUTHOR intended, not a bas****ized version like Redhat and other give out, true UNIX (it is said that Linux is for those who hate Microsoft, BSD is for those who love unix).
You know, anti-freebsd mentality is probably coming from someone who "hates" Debian, Gentoo and slack because you have to lift a finger.
If you ever developed software you'll realize FreeBSD is very clean.
Also note, two huge pieces of network iron run FreeBSD as thier embedded OS, Juniper (makes bigger than 15000 series Cisco stuff such as the M160) and F5 BigIP.
FreeBSD also has livelock management in the kernel and provides excellent networking performance; especially with polling.
FreeBSD is a joy to use, and is intended for those who have something to do with the computer.
FreeBSD has a place, and its only going to get better and more adopted.

Stick with 3.4.6. I'd give 3.5.6 a 4/5 rating. This new version is extortion to get loyal customers to pay a lot of money. Message to vandyke - PuTTY is free - so you better your customers them better.
PuTTY also has working PGUP/PGDOWN, and many many other things that do work properly that dont in SCRT 3/4. I log into many Unixes, and PuTTY works better in most.
I like SCRT 3.4.6 better than PuTTY overall bcause of the connection manager.
I think this program should be tabbed as well, and should facilitate broadcasting commands.
On a side note, I benchamrked SCP vs. PuTTY pscp, SecureFX, Tatu-SSH.COM SSH client, winSCP, etc. You would be suprised to know that the more you pay for the SCP implementation, the slower it is. scp is free/opensource, and can pull about 9MB/sec on a 100mbit line (fastest possible is about 11MB/sec) Candyke only gets about 2.2MB/sec.

Carlson, please. MS owned? I am not, we use all Linux, FreeBSD and Solaris machines at the place where I work. I find you offensive and rude, and unable to be technical. I don't know what the 8.1.b3 is like, but I can tell you about 8.1 in general. And if 8.1.b2 and 8.1.b3 are so different then something is broken, bad. . .
Anyways, I track RHN, Bugtraq, rawhide, so don't you even dare call this a troll. I also have valid problems with Redhat. So to answer your stupid, arrogant know-nothing comments: 1) I am commenting on 8.1.bx, 2) not relevant anymore because I didn't DL 8.1.b3, 3) again irrelevant. You amuse me, you make 3 points out of one, you snark, that means you have to try and expound on NOTHING. Did you fail the bar exam? That is what a bad lawyer would do. 4) Design flaws tend to last the lifetime of a product, see Windows NT for an example. Some of the same problems exist today as they did when NT 3.1 was released. My preference for things other than RedHat (eg FreeBSD)are completely valid. You know dumb you look? You are the troll here. You cannot engage in a technical rebuttal of why I prefer say, FreeBSD, and you use amateur flak such are accusing me of Microsoft zealotry which is baseless and unfounded, and you suffer from the same zealotry that you accuse. I have legitimate critical problems with RedHat 8.x. Most everyone I know who uses RedHat linux as a server is using 6.2 or 7.1, and 6.2 and 7.1 are available for far more machines/architectures than is 8.x. You are offensive, baseless and if you think you are doing combat with someone who supports Microsoft, you are dead wrong. It was once said: BSD is for those who love Unix, Linux is for those who hate Microsoft. I will not subscribe to blind love, and I for one think Debian and Gentoo, and things like Open/Free/NetBSD deserve a *lot* more airtime than RedHat/SuSE/Mandrake get. Especially RedHat. If you really worked with Unix or supporting a Unix infrastructure or programmers you would know what I'm talking about. And I would like to add that we use Solaris for the NFS/home directory server. Why? RH/Linux NFS is broken as an NFS server. Today. How about 'dem apples?

This software is essential. I have never seen this one cause problems - ever, and I have been using it on many many machines for some time. Also get * microsoft baseline security analyzer 1.1 OR microsoft hfnetcheck by shavlik [these check for missig microsoft patches] * proxomitron [this is in inline proxy that cleans out popus and lots of junk] * spyware blaster 2.02+, this puts activex stubs to prevent ie from being infected (spyware that looks like IE running and not "itself" - eg comet cursor) * taskinfo 4.51+ to see processes in a similar fashion to unix ps -auxwwwww / ps -elfy * Mike Lin's Startup Control Panel 2.8 to see what junk starts automatically that isn't a service (usually spyware or bloatware) * symantec norton antivirus 8 corporate * trojan remover 4.97+ * xp anti spy 3.71+ * kerio personal firewall (free) application level firewall to see who wants to chat with the internet. * and also put this in your hosts file: 0.0.0.0 ie.search.msn.com
0.0.0.0 sa.windows.com - I use all these programs, all the time, and give them to everyone to keep the computer clean.
Keep you computer free of spyware, malware and bloatware. use everything I said above and learn about your computer and what is running. It is imperative or your PC will become an appliance over time - some black box you no longer have complete control over!

Ok, this is all absurd. The ownership of sound is like owning a human being or owning something intangible. Its like owning something priceless. This is a way to spread music. And music is downloaded and listened to based on merit. No more Spice Girls and 'N Sync, phony produced and pushed fake music. No more new kids on the block. No more rich producers telling the public what we are going to listen to and what gets put on those silverf platters. Metallica, stop whining. Don't tell me you guys arn't already 1000 times richer than the average Joe. Thank the powers that be you have 1000 times more than 99.999% of every other human being on the planet. Now its time for the "no-name" "never-going-to-be-produced-because-they-arn't-as-lucky-as-Metallica" bands to be downloaded more than your new music, which is, compared to your old stuff, horrible. The only reason your new album was published was because, well, you are Metallica. Power to the people, well make the choice, and when you suck, we wont even show up to the concert halls anymore =)
