When that happens, make a switch to BSD, it is more friendly to
Or Debian GNU/kFreeBSD, feels more familiar as GNU/Linux. Quoting from
Debian/kFreeBSD developer Steven Chamberlain,
Support old hardware for as long as possible:
floppy drives, tape drives, ISA network cards - whatever our users might have;
hardware can be useful, for as long as we provide a stable OS for it;
be an alternative for any situation where Linux has issues, and to help in debugging those issues.
Allow old software and installed systems to exist for as long as possible:
rewriting application software costs time and effort
FreeBSD users often follow a stable branch for many years;
Debian LTS was a really good idea.
Would like to ease migration of FreeBSD systems to Debian, or vice-versa.
