Yawn. I remember sitting on the can reading BSD mags in the 80s when they
were saying the same thing regarding OSF. There there were/are other
Linuxes, BSDs, and Unixes.
I've done a bunch of infrastructure and tasked-support work using Linux
for the past couple of years. The FreeBSD pieces work better. Does Linux
have some advantages? Yes. Does FreeBSD have some deficiencies? Yes.
There, I said it. I'm over it now.
