comment How to run Unix?
BSD could not be an "add-on" to UNIX if it was a standalone OS itself so I don't know what you mean by that. I get your point about the product but if a product is certified as UNIX then that makes it a UNIX product.

comment How to run Unix?
In fact, Linux Torvalds once said that if BSD was available, he never would have created Linux. (FreeBSD was in court with ATT due to its containing original ATT UNIX code which was subsequently removed and rewritten.)

UNIX is a thing and there is documentation that must be followed and you can be certified as UNIX (trademarked) opengroup.org/subjectareas/platform/unix. Also, Apple's OSX is certified UNIX but its kernel is not BSD. It borrows a number of elements from FreeBSD but it is not based on FreeBSD or BSD in general.

comment How to run Unix?
A couple of problems with this answer. First, UNIX has not "ended", is very much alive, and one example of this is Apple's OSX which is a certified UNIX. Second, FreeBSD is a direct descendant of UNIX and once contained ATT code, which was removed and rewritten, while Linux was, at the beginning, an attempt to emulate or imitate UNIX but my opinion is that Linux no longer has that goal and is moving farther away from resembling anything UNIX. If one wants to get closest to UNIX, the easiest and best way is to use Apple's OSX or one of the BSDs.

comment PC-BSD PBI, what reasons made it to be scrapped?
Windows is an entirely different animal than FreeBSD/Unix. You can't easily port a well running program to Windows, with all its warts/dlls/etc., and expect it to run. That's why everything needs to be self-contained. Windows is not reliable or consistent over any period of time. It's why you never find Windows outside of Microsoft's own creations.

comment Which virtual machine image for installing FreeBSD?
I can't tell if this is answering the question or is a comment that you can't get it to work. If the latter, I can report there are many FreeBSD users happily using it on Macs and OSX for years.

comment How to build openssl with clang(rather than gcc) on a FreeBSD machine?
Careful. You're showing your slashes going the wrong way. Clang is the default compiler on FreeBSD version 10 and later. Which version are you on?

comment How to print the name of missing files in a folder?
@Celada While we all know what she meant, the terminology is incorrect. Open any man page and you will never find anything calling a directory anything but that. Get the terms right or you're just creating confusion for those who don't know the difference.

comment How to print the name of missing files in a folder?
In *nix, we call them 'directories', not folders. Folders is a Windows term.

comment My FreeBSD server busy rejecting sendmail relay
It should be "sendmail_enable="NO" though I don't know if "NONE" will not work, but that's deprecated. Where are you seeing these thousands of requests?

comment My FreeBSD server busy rejecting sendmail relay
@Deleteme Sendmail is installed as part of the base system because some services use it to deliver messages to root and other services.

Can't tell what you did wrong unless you show us what you did.
