PC-BSD Users Handbook

Thanks to everyone who left comments regarding feature and documentation suggestions. Keep these coming so we can start prioritizing and integrating your suggestions.

Spending today going through the PC-BSD Users Handbook. The plan thus far is to read it through while addressing broken links, obviously outdated information (such as version numbers) and fixing grammatical errors. After the first pass-through, I’ll have a better idea of which sections need updated material and what documentation does not yet exist.

This is where you can help out, too. Have you gone to the Handbook to find out how to do something and couldn’t find it? Have you done something cool on your PC-BSD system that you think should be added to the Handbook? Are there some new features in 8.x that you haven’t found in the Handbook yet? Let us know! We’ll definitely need help with reviewing content and writing new content.

Besides leaving a comment here, you can also interact with us in more “real-time”. If you use IRC Freenode, hop into #pcbsd. Or start a conversation in the Facebook Group or LinkedIn Group.

Welcome!

Welcome to the PC-BSD blog! Here we hope to keep you up-to-date with what’s happening with the PC-BSD operating system and what features are in the works. We also want to hear your comments and feedback so we can find out what is useful and interesting to PC-BSD users and become aware of any pain points or requests for new features.

It’s also my first day of working full time with the PC-BSD community. I have a large laundry list of things that need doing, starting with filling in some documentation gaps. I’d definitely like to hear from you–especially if you have a task to perform in PC-BSD and you can’t find any documentation on how to do it. Or if you are aware of tasks that have changed in 8.x where the documentation has not been updated yet.

We also welcome suggestions on topics you would like to see covered in this blog. So, feel free to leave a comment and to subscribe to this blog. If you can’t find a way to subscribe using your favourite method, leave a comment and we’ll see if we can add it.
