I don't want to install Linux just for tux, and I know at least
thttpd(or other kqueue-using equivalents) works very well on
FreeBSD. I just want to know the possibility and usefulness compared
to many userland ones.
And for nfs, old usermode nfsd of linux works nicely on FreeBSD. If we
improve usermode nfsd for stability and performance, why don't we
compare it with kernel-level nfsd implementation?

Again, I know what is tux and why there is no such experiment on
FreeBSD. Some people explained why, and I agree with them.
