it’s a good choice for that — you won’t have any distractions because you can’t do anything with bsd :laugh:

i hope you have a plan for dealing with windows loader fuckery, assuming you're dual-booting

easiest would probably be two disks with each their own ESP, and using either disk switching in the UEFI UI, or manipulating the UEFI boot manager

Im thinking about setting up a DigitalOcean droplet with freebsd for a game server. I have no idea if its worth the effort having never used it before, especially for such a small use case but it seems like a neat hobby project.

yes exactly. basically a quarter of the debian manual is a weird diatribe about "free software"

yeah even as someone who runs an openbsd firewall at home, junos is the best bsd

if I could get a vsrx license through work for free I would use that instead. junos rocks

my openbsd firewalls will have to be pried from my cold dead hands but an srx300 makes a good compliment and can be had for ~$200 on ebay

junos and openbsd are both v good
