True for TV stuff like lacking get MythTV works, but DVD, xvid/divx and

work fine just like Linux.

Can BSD play sound from multiple sources at the same time? Linux has a problem with that..

DFBSD and FreeBSD can, in fact. On FreeBSD-5, all you need to set is 2 sysctls, and just use /dev/dsp. On FreeBSD4 and DFBSD, you can set the same sysctls, but then you need to use /dev/dsp0.1 for one app, and /dev/dsp0.2 for another.

I don't know 'm by heart, but doing sysctl -a | grep vchan will show them for you. Set the one that's set to 1 to 4 and you're golden. Oh, and make sure the /dev entries exist.

Beagle requires Mono too, which will not work on FreeBSD 4.x at all. It
might be work on DragonFly since it now has TLS, 1:1 thread library and
etc. But, it's very possible that there are few things left that to need
to be add few stuff like ttyname_r()[1], functions in libc, userlands and

I have no idea what Beagle is other than that it's akin to GNOME somehow. Almost everyone that knows me knows I'm a KDE user anyway (and KDE works beautifully on DragonFly).
