The stable legacy branch of the popular BSD-based operating system FreeBSD has been updated to FreeBSD 7.3. The release is a housekeeping update that brings some newer packages and some security fixes, but no new features. FreeBSD 7.3 is now available for the amd64, i386, pc98, and sparc64 architectures.
My question is a little bit strange but here is how I define it.
Coming from a FreeBSD world I wish to make the Linux terminal behave like FreeBSD one, especially the 9.1 version, basically when you type cd in the terminal and push the "up" arrow you can browse all the commands in the history starting with cd which makes you gain a lot time.
I don't know how to enable this feature in Linux Debia
The FreeBSD Foundation, the maker of the FreeBSD open source operating system, proudly announced on the last day of 2012 that the FreeBSD 9.1 release is now officially available. Actually, the FreeBSD 9.1 operating system was available for download (without any official release) on the FTP servers of the FreeBSD Foundation since last week.

44 years ago, somewhere in Helsinki, the capital and the largest city in Finland, was born Linus Benedict Torvalds, the founding father of Linux and the chief architect of the Linux kernel. Born on December 28, 1969, Linus Torvalds is a Finnish/American software engineer who created Linux, an open source, POSIX-compliant and UNIX-like operating system for computers.
Linux creator Linus Torvalds is well-known for his strong opinions on many technical things. But when it comes to systemd, the init system that has caused a fair degree of angst in the Linux world, Torvalds is neutral.
“When it comes to systemd, you may expect me to have lots of colourful opinions, and I just don’t,” Torvalds told iTWire in an interview.
