Well, we 're not Google or Facebook, and we would like to stick with linux...I'm not 100% sure what that has to do with anything...I'm taking a a guess at maybe your thinking of high performance web sites in which case it has a lot of uses over just that, if that's what you think. <quote> What applications are you planning on running? What kind of performance do you need? As others have suggested, *BSD have a great security and stability track record. However, Linux (all distros) have much more capability than *BSD in many areas. File system choice is limited in the *BSD variants to UFS/FFS, the BSD Fast filesystem, and SFS, which reserves odd numbered inodes for ACL information, but otherwise is identical to FFS. *BSD do not often alternative high performance file systems such as XFS, the fastest filesystem available for most applications.
We are a large university's NOC, with thousands of users and the requirement that our servers are interoperable with other universities also running linux. In short, we must stick to linux. Anyway, I found tons of references pro Debian on the web so I think I'm done with my argument!
