we've run both albeit in a small environment.
both were excellent and never had any problems whatsoever workstations
or servers.

we run freebsd for our servers though because the most recent one we got
couldn't seem to work the hardware raid card with linux. i generally
prefer freebsd for server matters too because it has a 'cleanlier feel'
to it. 

this community was very helpful a couple of years ago in helping me to
set things up so i consider that to be another plus.

in friendship,
