BSD people

Posted by: Anonymous Coward on November 23, 2005 09:54 PM
BSD's are great, really. But why BSD people always try to say that Linux is shit?

Simply because they feel threatened by it: it challenges both their OS and their development model (and they really should not feel like this - these are apples and orange comparisons with two different prodcuts in mind)

But the reason why *BSD largely absent from this list is that *BSD focus on *network security* not performance. You wanna hyper-secure website - use OpenBSD. You wanna high-performance computer - use GNU/Linux.

You want the best of both worlds? Use Debian GNU/Linux (stable).
