FreeBSD By now, anyone who is even remotely related to an IT-type position has heard about Linux, and has most likely used it, if only to see what all the hype is about. However, GNU/Linux is not the only "free" Unix type OS available. FreeBSD and its cousins, NetBSD and OpenBSD are all offshoots of BSD UNIX, a commercial UNIX also known as Berkeley Software Distribution. This article will help you learn more about FreeBSD, its differences from Linux, and it will ease a potential migration process.

I just recently move from Mandrake Corporate Server 1.01 to FreeBSD 4.5. The FBSD box has been more stable and a lot leaner than my Mandrake box was. I have been able to do things a lot faster and easier with this FBSD box than with linux and I think linux has lost this user indefiniatly. This FBSD box is much better for www serving than linux.

BTW good article, made me sure I made the right descsion.
