Here's the deal, Chad. On this list, all the
college-kid sysadmins tell me how great FreeBSD
is, but on the freebsd-performance list, none of
the developers refute my findings. If that
doesn't tell you something, then you really don't
have the capacity to comment on this or any other
You can't reason someone out of an idea not
reasoned into, Chad. You have no foundation for
your beliefs, so even prima facie evidence won't
convince you. Its called being a fool.
