    There are still problems with Linux threads. A few days ago the Linux
    clone() system call was added to the Linux emulator. I hope indeed
    that within some days the Linux emulator is able to run oracle-8 too.

    This is not flamebait! It is my opinion. While I'm very glad that
    through Linux the free Unices get a lot of attention, which inderectly
    is also good for FreeBSD, personally I really prefer FreeBSD because
    of its robustness and its development process.

    Indeed, that is true and I should have stated my opinion
    differently. What I meant to say is that I prefer FreeBSD because of
    several reasons, and I think it is a pity that I cannot do all I want
    on FreeBSD (at the moment, until the Linux emulator is improved again)
    because there's more commercial support for Linux.
