These two OpenSource operating versions, to become available over the next several weeks, demonstrated improvements over prior versions and compare well to each other.
I woul like to tell you that my preferred operating system, Ubuntu, came out on top …. and it did! But if you are selecting an operating system where speed is essential and there is a limited range of tasks to be performed regularly, you should compare the two more closely by looking at the review. While Ubuntu rocked, FreeBSD kicked butt in a few areas., especially pertaining to SQL related tasks.
Actually, there is probably enough overlap between the systems and obscurity to what you would use the computer to do that if you are a Umbuntusymp or a BSDsymp, you’ll find an excuse to use the OS you otherwise fetishize for purely cultural reasons.
