I'm sorry... I couldn't help myself. After several years using linux,
and dealing with stability problems, I switched to FreeBSD, and since
then (about 4 yrs ago) I've had no problems. My code actually runs
faster and I don't have to deal with several FreeBSD distributions. If
I have to hack an OS kernel or distribution in order to make it work,
then I don't want it. That's why I switched to Freebie.
