has anyone ever tried freebsd here? Its threading model from a users point of view is brilliant. It never freesez, the GUI never stops responding, even when a CD is being burnt and a tape drive backup is in operation simulateously.
Albeit Java 1.2 is only supported by SUN, but there is a port for java 1.4_04. Besides, you have a linux emulation layer on there too, so you can emulate things that linux can run, at a comparable speed too ( if not faster e.g. Quake III)
So whoever is using a Unix or Linux, switch to freebsd now
