    Windows also runs on smartphones, desktop systems and servers.
    iOS and OS X are kinda same and they on smartphones, tablets, desktop computer, and they had an abandoned attempt at servers.

      What's the old saying? Jack of all trades ... master of none?
      The *BSD are horrible for desktop in general (you might use it, but you'll need some extra effort on your part, and stuff won't work like it works on linux), but for servers it's a whole another story

        Linux lacks simplicity and stability in some cases.

          That's a pure bullshit. It works excellent on servers, embedded systems, HPC, desktops etc. It's not surprising it has the highest market share in nearly every market.

            Why would *BSD be a better server than Linux?

              Nope. It's rock stable compared to other operating systems and it's very simple and flexible. Just use proper distribution.

                It's not and it's proven by market share.

                  ext2 is asynchronous by default -> not reliable
                  Data loss on power failure or crash with ext4, especially early versions (like 2.6.30).

                  Compare /etc.

                    This is not proof.
                    *BSD might be better server than Linux, because it's more careful with your data ... It doesn't risk for better performance.

                      Except the first sentence, I wasn't talking about linux. never said that one of the BSDs are a better server because I have the coherence that a tool fits the job and not the other way ... and that includes the operating system itself.
                      In my own experience and taste, I found that the features of the system are a big PLUS on certain situations ... (ZFS, DTrace, Jails, pf, resource containers, the layout of the base system and ports, etc etc etc)

                      *BSD might be better server than Linux, because it's more careful with your data ... It doesn't risk for better performance.
                      Which filesystems are you comparing ?
