Migrating to FreeBSD for both dev and server work is on my personal roadmap for around June / July this year, once 11.0 is released and my laptop chipset is supported.

You're talking about Intel video driver issues, I assume? If you can, I'd suggest trying 11.0-ALPHA1 (https://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/freebsd-snapshots/2016-M...) in case there are bugs you can report. It's always difficult with new hardware to get enough people testing before the release to get everything fixed.


Yup. I hadn't realised there was an alpha out; last I checked 11.0 was still on nightlies. I'll definitely give the alpha a look, and try it out if all seems good. Thanks for the heads-up :)


The release cycle just started. It's basically a weekly snapshot with a different name, but we've moved into "code slush" (prelude to "code freeze") so from now on there should theoretically be more bug fixes and fewer new features.


I gave it a whirl - both in FreeBSD and PC-BSD forum - but couldn't get anything other than VESA drivers running.
