There's not much difference since SysVr4 and BSD 4.4. (ie. first half
the 90's). Now-a-days, most of the differences are differences in
implementations rather than fundemental differences and features that
each kernel would provide. Both SysVr4 and BSD kernels will get the
job done, its really more of how things are done internally.
