A small correction: This is not a review, but an overview, aimed at helping people get up and running with it.

As to the article itself: I'm no fan of the *nix model, and there's more than a little grandstanding in the article ('Spetacular'? I know a few things that 'spetacular' could apply to, and none of them is an OS), but now I can see more clearly why I have so many friends who swear by OpenBSD/FreeBSD. (I assume that this article would be equally helpful for users of FreeBSD, although that's an assumption on my part.)

OpenBSD is "spectacular," ever use it? Also, if you admit to not being a fan of UNIX type systems, what's the point of your comment?

A critique of the flaws of the *nix model is something that would take a full article, not a forum post, to properly line out. But I can still compliment an article that gets me interested despite my opinions. ^^;
