"Now that we finally have the new 2.4 Linux kernel, many
penguinistas are sure the FreeBSD cousins will finally stop making
fun of them. They had been doing so for a while because,
admittedly, FreeBSD has had superior kernel design in areas like
virtual memory manager (VM) and networking."
"In fact, some of the world's busiest websites, such as Yahoo
and cdrom.com, are relying on FreeBSD to manage the huge load their
servers endure day in and day out...."
"Linux 2.4.0 is available for no money. So is FreeBSD. Linux
uses advanced hardware, so does FreeBSD. FreeBSD is more stable and
faster than Linux, in my opinion. We penguinistas sometimes believe
we are having more fun than anybody. But then I lean over the fence
and discover the FreeBSD folks are having a hell of a party, too.
And their OS is as fast as I have seen."
