I completely disagree with your foolish and nonsense comments about the
Linux Kernel and the Linux OS. It's perfectly clear that you didn't
understand well enough how the linux development process works. If you
thought that the recently released kernels are not stable then, you have
to wait the 2.6.x.y series or you can use the distro kernels. All of
your comments are pointless and no base. You are free to choose BSD or
whatever you want to use. No one is putting a gun on your head to use
Linux :-)

I can very easily say that,cause of my experiences , the Linux Kernel is
PERFECTLY STABLE! I work in an one of the largest ISP of my country and
I use Linux very intensively under very high loads and I NEVER NEVER
faced any problems because of the fault of the Linux Kernel on my
environments. For example, many of our mail servers run on Linux and all
the day they process hundred thousands emails without any downtime or

The manufactures mostly choose Linux instead of BSD flavors, simply
because of that Linux kernel, technically, more superior to BSDs or
others. When it comes to licenses: the BSD license is more and more
worse, if GPL is bad. GPL protects your freedom and openness of the
codes via forcing the changes to the source code must be return in open
form. For BSD, it is opposite. You are free to take someone else's code
and there is NO PROTECTION to prevent your code to become a closed
(proprietary) source. Can you imagine that one company (like Microsoft)
takes your whole kernel source code and creates a PROPRIETARY OS (Like
Windows!) as making a fool of you ? Why? Because; simply, BSD license
allows it! No need to return the code! Do you think really think that
BSD license is more free as making a fool of you ?
