    If you are trying to set up some type of server than my suggestion is go for BSD or Solaris (costly). Linux can be your next choice. Otherwise I find no compelling reason to let my most hardware to an unusable state. Learning can be an entirely different issue. BSD can let you know many things about a UNIX system that a Linux system will not.

    P.S:- I run BSD just for the heck of doing it.

    That's strange because the nv driver is maintained by X.org, not OpenBSD or even Arch Linux. Wiki is here: http://wiki.x.org/wiki/nv

    Unless what you're saying is you use the binary driver on Arch Linux. (Maybe I read it wrong.)

    Maybe the X.org version you used on Arch Linux was different.

    I use the nv driver on FreeBSD and I'm happy with it. (I don't use 3d acceleration.)
