Linux is many things but in terms of solid OS BSD is more things. BSD
still has an edge in a number of areas, technically speaking. Many
people think so (and I tend to agree). Linux is very nice to develop for
and with. That argument may outweigh the technical merit for a games
box. There is also the GPL issue, which BSD does not have.
