    Yup, simply put, under hard load, xBSDs can go on for years without rebooting while Linux stick for months. Neither are exactly UNIX, ’cause they aren’t certified by the open group as such, but the FreeBSD implementation is closest to that. FreeBSD focuses on performance, NetBSD on portability, and OpenBSD in security.

    Hah, nicely put. I love OpenBSD and FreeBSD..

    Linux for losers, FreeBSD for users!

    This just reminds me how much i miss TechTV

    If they’re going to compete then I don’t think they should focus on stuff that doesn’t matter like which one installs faster or which one looks prettier doing it.

    I might consider bsd if i was running strictly a headless server. I’ll be converting this computer from a desktop into a router when I get my new computer so maybe ill check out freebsd. I don’t see anything wrong with gentoo linux for it though. I know its possible to build quite robust network nodes on linux.

    How is bsd for desktop machines? It seems less software is ported to it in comparison to linux.

    It is true, mysql run fine in Linux.
    FreeBSD requires a more specific tuning for some applications.

  8. stathisch Says:

    Well the benchmarks actually depend on the software you’re benchmarking.
    E.g seems that most of the times mysql performs better in Linux.

  9. rootmese Says:

    Linux is based on Minix, and FreeBSD is a BSDOS, both are Unix like.
    But I think witch FreeBSD is more simple, the POSIX implemetation is better.
    I use both OS and
    FreeBSD has always been better for the development of projects and had superior results in benchmark tests.
    I like the Linux, but FreeBSD is perfect.

  11. eddyownage Says:

    You DO realize that Mac OS X was based on BSD and is now its own UNIX-compilant OS, right?

  12. xBICYCLEx Says:

    who cares? they are both good and free. better than windows or mac osx

  13. stathisch Says:

    No. You’re completely wrong.
    Both FreeBSD and Linux do follow the POSIX standards, but unlike FreeBSD that has parts of the original Unix code; Linux does not, as it’s a clone.

  14. eliplan312 Says:

    well… FreeBSD is basically Linux, so……

    Undeadjoat what about learn English, before you are making an idot out of yourself. And if you can read, you’ll also have seen that I posted on my own question:
    ”Arrrr, Teach TV. I could just’ve looked at the video.”
