If you’ve made it this far, you now know how to manage and use FreeBSD as a platform for just about any server task. You might have to learn new protocols and how to configure new programs, but the underlying operating system is pretty much a solved problem. Congratulations! FreeBSD is a wonderful, flexible platform, capable of assuming just about any role in your network. To wrap things up, I’d like to discuss some other aspects of FreeBSD.
We’ve talked about FreeBSD’s features throughout this book: the programs, the kernel, the features, and so on. One thing we haven’t covered is the community that creates all this.
