I have jumped from Linux and Solaris to FreeBSD, and I'm never going
back. Life has been better for me since then :-)

I have only one FreeBSD server on Sparc (Sun 420R). And it runs without
any problems for 4 years now. Last uptime was more than 500 days.
I had to upgrade the server from 6x to 7.3-RELEASE. So there were no
crash dumps of any kind related to FreeBSD OS and Sun hardware support.
Everything I needed I founded in ports. So I'd say, FreeBSD runs like
hell on Sun hardware. Ooops! Oracle :-)
