FreeBSD Desktop on the T400

The ThinkPad T Series is one of the most popular ever, which has led to consistent hardware design and broad support for it. Although the T400 was introduced in 2008 and produced up until 2010, it is very much suited to run the latest and greatest FreeBSD–10.1 in the current case. Here are the steps that led to a viable desktop installation using the i3 window manager, background info and a few security tips sprinkled on top.

OPNsense: Because Open Makes Sense

Cheers to the project!
I have to say that’s not my statement, but it’s very much true. Today we released OPNsense 15.1 including all of its source code. It has been the accumulation of work of the better half of a year for most of us and I think it is the right step at the right time. The lovely BSD community (FreeBSD in particular) deserves a project that listens to its users and adapts no matter the cost, no matter the hardship. Hard choices will have to be made along the road, but for now all that matters is that we are finally on this road together. I feel privileged to be a part of it. That’s all I have to say. :)
