    Hello.
    Based on a different thread, it appears Parallels may be dropping FreeBSD Support.
    I have looked for additional information, however have found none.
    Plesk v10 supported OS's now list FreeBSD as Q3 of 2011, however in a different thread
    it was stated that Parallels is no longer going to support FreeBSD.

    Anyone have any further information?

    Hello Igor.
    I do want to say, I am in no way attempting to create any additional frustration, and do
    appreciate your honesty.
    We have been using Plesk since late 2000, and have seen many changes.

    I am asking for validation and confirmation.
    Website was updated to reflect Q3 for FreeBSD, Was Q1, yet you indicated FreeBSD will not be supported.
    If it is no longer supported, why was the date shifted to Q3?
    I have been waiting since last year (2010), with updates from Sale, as well as support indicating
    "It will be supported, and to be patient".

    Sales is/was not aware of the change.
    The only posting was in the 9.x forum.

    As I mentioned to my sales rep, I am a bit disappointed.
    While FreeBSD may not be Parallels Main Stream Supported OS, it is certainly deployed.
    Not sure what Parallels Market share is, however I believe dropping FreeBSD, I believe may be a mistake.

    Over the last 3 or so years, FreeBSD support from Parallels has been failing to meet the mark.
    Releases that do not work. Support issues that get put on hold.
    All the while we still pay for SUS.

    Finally I have to ask.
    Is there going to be a Formal Posting here indicating the "Dropping" of FreeBSD, or is this posting
    going to be it?


    Thanks.

    Sorry, maybe I was not exact enough. I meant that we won't release any more Plesk for FreeBSD. Old FreeBSD installations will be supported as before.

    Sorry guys, I should inform you that decision to drop Free BSD is not final. It is 95% likely that we will drop Free BSD, but it is not official now.
