    Linux vs *BSD


    Could someone help me in understanding why some hosts seem to love Linux and others stand by BSD?

    Also, what are the differences between OpenBSD, NetBSD, and FreeBSD?

    (such as where and how it's used, etc.)

    Thanks!

    -Chris

    P.S. I believe this is my first post

    Hi
    First welcome
    Then typically we said that:
    open is secure
    net is hardware-compatible
    free is for everyone
    The BSD boot is different too:u choose the services u want to see running on ur pc (but u could have that under linux)
    Personnally I use from time to time FreeBSD

    Thanks Gnux and Slip. I'll be sure to double-check searches before I post again.
