- thank you for your hard work on getting boot environments to work in FreeBSD and also for integrating them into TrueOS.
- I installed FreeBSD 11.0 BETA onto my laptop but somehow got my system into an unbootable state. This was after I already moved all my data back onto the disk and went to travel for 2 weeks. But with my USB stick having the recent TrueOS I installed TrueOS into a new boot environment and got all my data back and could rescue my main system.
- Thank you for that :D
- But it got me thinking - Illumos has long support for boot environments and Linux now having pretty okay support - would it be possible to put Illumos and Linux into different boot environments and boot whatever OS I currently need?
- As my data would be in a different ZFS partition it would be a much better dual boot system than using different gpt/bios partitions and much less wasteful.
