A year of The Fish

Today I've released a new version of The Fish, my little contribution to the FreeBSD community. It was almost one year ago that we talked about it in the freebsd-hackers mailing list. It's come a long way, with far more people using it than I had expected for such a niche program. After all, its use is for FreeBSD admins, it's very tied to the platform. I'm quite happy today, I'd even say it's the best thinToday I've released a new version of The Fish, my little contribution to the FreeBSD community.

Looks like a great little project you have there. Had I known about it when I started with OpenBSD (It also works on OpenBSD, right?), I'd probably have used it.
However being forced straight into vi with the config files, teaches you a lot. I don't regret having to go through the hassle of understanding the system. Big advantage is: now I'm comfy with vi, know where my important config files are, and in general feel more close to the system.

Good luck with your project!

Now that I visited your homepage, I think I had better shut up about OpenBSD. I think I'm going to get me a Hello Kitty laptop now. ;-)
