Linux 2.6 scales better with load(see fefe's benchmarks) and cpus
(linux works on a 512cpu beast, made by SGI...can´t imagine FreeBSD
running on a 8< cpu machine...)
But hey. I might be biased, and i've only really used OpenBSD and
DragonFlyBSD .. but from the kernel specs of linux... it scales
beastly now...
SGI is doing SSI on that beast, and using alot custom hardware to
facilitate syncronization.  So yes linux on custom hardware can kick
ass. :-)
