I suggest you ...

support BSD OS?

It would be great to run any BSD in your droplet.

    All,

    We’re pleased to announce the release of FreeBSD on DigitalOcean today. You can create droplets using the FreeBSD image via the Create page or the API. Please note that FreeBSD creates require an SSH key and root passwords are not supported.

    Our community team has compiled tons of useful information and tutorials which can be found on our community site here:

    https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tags/freebsd

    For those of you looking for us to add similar but distinct distros, please submit a new Uservoice request so we can gauge the level of interest.

    Thank you everyone for your continued involvement. Enjoy FreeBSD on DO!

    Thanks,
    Sam Gimbel
    Product Manager

        Are you going to support NetBSD as one of the three BSDs? NetBSD is the father of OpenBSD after all :-)

        @James Adam, just like Linux taught me to appreciate FreeBSD, FreeBSD taught me to appreciate OpenBSD.

        OpenBSD -- the world's simplest and most secure Unix-like OS. Creator of the world's most used SSH implementation OpenSSH, the world's most elegant firewall PF, the world's most elegant mail server OpenSMTPD, the OpenSSL rewrite LibreSSL, and the NTP rewrite OpenNTPD. OpenBSD -- the cleanest kernel, the cleanest userland and the cleanest configuration syntax.

        Might want to look into that as well.

        Cheers!

        I think with the recent systemd travesty, a lot of linux folks are going to be seriously looking at the BSDs. I've always liked FreeBSD more than linux (it's more unix-ey), but have been using linux simply because it was easier to find hosting. I've got an app in development now that I would love to be able to deploy on FreeBSD in the near future. I'm about done with Debian, and I've never liked the RH-based distros (I hear nothing but bad things about CentOS 7).

        +3 All BSDs

      • Pedro GiffuniPedro Giffuni commented  · 

        +1 FreeBSD

        I am biased but it's on AWS and Azure so you can't afford not to have it if you want to be competitive nowadays ;).
