   It has screwed me badly in the past, both in terms of reliability and 
performance.  NetBSD was there first, YEARS before FreeBSD, and is WAY 
more mature on that platform.

   But trust me...anything x86 that I'm involved with gets FreeBSD if it 
needs to be reliable.  FreeBSD is great (amazing actually) on x86 
hardware.  On anything else it's a port of a "very x86" OS.
