    You don't consider performance tuning support?

    Exactly, why do you think I am citing a specific factual source?  I
could go on about what our servers are doing here, both good and bad for
both Linux and FreeBSD but that isn't the point.

    Probably not.  I know about Dejanews and quite a few others.  But that
does not go to state that Linux' network code is faster than FreeBSD's
network code which is where I started this thread by playing Devil's
Advocate.  I have cited a factual, real world source of FreeBSD's grace
under pressure.  417Gb in a day.  Where are the Linux numbers to support the
claim that Linux' network code is superior?
