I am a Linux guy. But I am also a big lover and user of OpenBSD and FreeBSD. This got me to thinking of BSD and it’s place in Cloud Computing. In terms of Amazon Web Services EC2 I have yet to see it. When checking the FreeBSD and OpenBSD projects I have yet to see it at all in a Xen form. There are a few posting regarding getting it to sort of work. There is a wiki page for FreeBSD project dedicated to a Xen port. I believe this lack of Xen support will not help BSDs to compete with Linux flavors. I would love to be able to use BSD for certain roles.
