All you do is complain.http://www.freebsd.org/releases/7.0R/announce.html
As of yesterday FreeBSD is not supporting 7.0. That means no more security updates. DA has really dropped the ball with it's BSD support imho. Today I am upgrading to 7.1 branch and I hope all goes well but if I need to fight to get it all working so be it. I still want the 64-bit BSD version too. I can't stand having to run the 32 bit binaries on a quad-core. It's ridiculous.
Spooky. I started with the raq2 as well. Cobalt made imho some impressive machines. At least until Sun bought them and destroyed the low-end server market in one purchase. That has always annoyed me.
I then ran Plesk a few years. Eventually they also moved up in pricing and to be honest I was never that happy with Plesk. They also were bought and that's when their pricing got high.
Then I went FreeBSD around 4.11 I think. Been there ever since. I used webmin for a short time but really it wasn't suitable for my needs. I could probably deal with webmin now but of course I have a lifetime license for DA. So as long as DA supports the latest version of BSD I will use it. It doesn't look however this is going to be true much longer at this rate.
I agree but realistically I doubt DA will bother. To me an even better solution would be a similar commercial package that was dedicated to FreeBSD. DA isn't cutting it and neither is Webmin.
