comment What do different BSDs have in common?
Thanks! FreeBSD and OpenBSD have a lot of documentation to get started, I highly recommend that you check out their websites and dig through the FAQ/Handbook. Documentation sounds boring, but trust me, this one is great, they put a lot of effort in it.

comment How to install drivers on Linux
Exactly, and if you happen to find the solution and post it here, it will help people in the future. Actually it's really hard to help you debug, you didn't give enough information and maybe you missed something. This is the best answer you can get with this question.

comment Since Android has malware, does it mean no Unix is immune from malware?
Because privilege separation is relatively easy to achieve in a unix-like environment. And because there's less malware existing for these platforms. And because really a few things get started automatically on unix-like systems. It's easier to configure, administer and secure. That's why. Now if everyone starts using a GNU/Linux, you'll get the same problems as on windows, sorta: users are not admins and attackers are smarter than them.

comment qemu: how to access host via sftp
using sftp on the port 10022 doesn't work? I didn't really focus on the user mode and redir, but just on the issue making ssh working and sftp not working. You are able to ssh from the guest to the host but not use sftp, which is really not normal assuming an openssh-server running with the default configuration. Sorry I got messed up in my answer, and I'll let someone else carry on since I can't be of much help.

comment How does Bash path completion work with sudo?
Even using absolute paths? /home/user/myiso<TAB> -> myisofile.iso. debug with sudo echo $SHELL ; sudo pwd, hopefully it'll give you some insights.

comment What do different BSDs have in common?
It is for scripting, but not for interactive use apparently. Besides, FreeBSD uses tcsh actually and runs it with csh compat mode if it's invoked as "csh" and not "tcsh". I find the (t)csh syntax difficult... || Source: lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/freebsd-hackers/2004-November/… / unix.derkeiler.com/Mailing-Lists/FreeBSD/current/2004-10/…

Nice answer. I think there's so much to tell, it would deserve writing a paper. I didn't mean to say OpenBSD community is not helpful. I did some research about binary compatibility, there's more: netbsd.org/docs/compat.html and compat_linux on OpenBSD. Apparently Open used to have freebsd binary compat: nixdoc.net/man-pages/OpenBSD/man8/compat_freebsd.8.html. As you stated, it's limited and I wouldn't rely on it.

Haha I'm not really active here so I don't know who is Gilles, but I am looking forward to reading his answer!
