Why I choose FreeBSD over Linux :).

August 29, 2007

This quote, that has been around for a while, is quite funny:

“BSD is what you get when a bunch of Unix hackers sit down to try to port a Unix system to the PC. Linux is what you get when a bunch of PC hackers sit down and try to write a Unix system for the PC.”

    I agree…
    Just look to the documentation of FreeBSD and Linux and you confirm the message.

    I can’t understand why this is a good reason to prefer *BSD over Linux, by itself.

    There are *technical* reasons, too? I’m a happy Linux user, and I’m searching the web for some of them, because I’m curious to know if it worth the time to try and experiment.

    Thank you!

    Hi Anal,

    This post was just a piece of humor. For me, the FreeBSD preference is quite historical at this point.
    I have just been a fan of it for a long time, it is quite perfect for my server needs:

    And when I recently tried Ubuntu for my desktop/server PC, it was uncessussful so I continue using FreeBSD:
