    What's an advantage of BSD over Linux?

      Off the top of my head (I don't know how much these apply to DragonflyBSD, I know more FreeBSD and derivatives):
      -permissive license (closed-source-product friendly)
      -better ZFS support/integration
      -kernel supposedly better for bigger iron systems (many many cores/CPUs)
      -their firewall is better/easier to use
      -better sound system, as long as you don't need to do anything fancy or modern.

      I don't use other features like jails or whatever, so I don't know.

        It depends from the point of view, so I list it regardless. I'd never use it for my work, but I like permissive licenses in work I can use myself.

        What a bunch of bullshit!
        That's why I said "supposedly". I've seen claims from decent sources, but I never saw that firsthand.

        Maybe as long as you don't even have a sound card?
        Oh come the fuck on, isn't "as long as you don't need to do anything fancy or modern" caveat obvious enough? Their sound infrastructure is better than plain ALSA, but is frozen in 90's as far as features go, so you don't have 5.1 audio, bluetooth audio, and more advanced stuff.

        It seems you don't know a thing, so I wonder why did you even reply?

          What a bunch of bullshit! Bsd is non existent on big irons. Linux supports 4096 CPUs on single image and scales crap out of BSD. Oh and even Phoronix benchmarks show Linux destroys BSD on many core machine. Furthermore, Linux has the fastest thread creation on this planet.

          Then I guess Netflix, Facebook and whatsapp are stupid to use FreeBSD?

            Facebook is using a lot of Linux. Netflix uses it specifically for doing TLS in the Kernel, something also supported on newer Linux Kernels.

              but people over at reddit.com/r/bsd can answer better.

                Better TCP stack? From the old days of whatsapp:

                  Serving 100Gbps from one server?

                    FreeBSD result from your link: 90Gbps.

                    Linux result: 98.9Gbps.
                    Your link is pointless. Unless I missed something it does not tell in what hardware the test was made.

                    So, it can be anything, ever a four socket machine.

                    For the record, the Netflix one was using a single-socket Xeon E5–2697v2, as pointed in the link.
