Let me just second that. FreeBSD as a server operating system is really
great. It comes wellconfigured out of the box. F.ex. it will send a
daily mail to root with information about the system, something I've
never seen in any Linux. Also the documentation is great -- all the
configuration files have their own man page. I've switched fully from
Linux to FreeBSD for server use as a consequence of this.
