Yes if you think that a Moped Engine is the equivalent to a Chevy V8. Checkpoint is a full featured Firewall appliance, IPTables is the foundation for Linux packet filtering.

Using iptables allows you to add some programming into the fray. Nice when you want to develop your own solution. One feature from BSD I would like to see is the ability to scrub packets for identifiers. Makes it harder for someone to profile your system.
