Linux vs FreeBSD clusters (was: how are the Redhat product changes affecting existing and future plans?)

A very good paper about building HPC clusters with FreeBSD:

"Building a High-performance Computing Cluster Using FreeBSD"

The author talked about hardware issues: KVM, BIOS redirection, CPU
choices; and then talked about why he chose FreeBSD instead of Linux...
he also did the port of GridEngine (SGE) to FreeBSD.

Anyone tried to setup HPC clusters with *BSD??
