This may bring up an old argument.
I been playing w/ linux for over a year and like it for a server very
much. I've been starting hearing more and more about FreeBSD. First
from a FreeBSD hard-core who tells me if you have a web server running
FreeBSD & another running Linux you won't see a performance difference
w/ a thousand hits a day. However if you get a million hits a day,
FreeBSD leaves Linux behind in the dust. He also sees Linux in a few
years becoming bloated like NT because stuff is being slapped on Linux
left and right w/o any control. He says, "FreeBSD is slow to change but
we're very stable." I asked one of our Linux instructor about this. He
didn't know too much about FreeBSD but it didn't surprise him because he
knows FreeBSD is more or less bulletproof and Linux still has security
problems as a server. He was surprise FreeBSD didn't get more
publicity. I had another instructor pointed out though that most
development is being done on Linux. Then I read this big article over
the Memorial Day weekend on FreeBSD and all these companies like Yahoo,
Hotmail,etc running all their servers using FreeBSD.
I'm about to set up 12 web servers w/ RH linux but now I'm not sure.
I know this is an old argument but does it still hold today? Comments?
