Operating systems

redhat is now a commercial product, but is continued in the open-source community as the "Fedora Project."

IMHO, FreeBSD is superior in many ways of security and organization.

Let me know if there is anything I can help you understand.

There really is no better. It's all what you prefer to use. I have used both FreeBSD as well as Redhat (7-9 and CentOS). I prefer linux, but i enjoy FreeBSD just as much.

Is this some kind of flame or what?

Both OSes have their good and bad sides and it's kind of personal preference to use any of it. RedHat isn't the only Linux out there and the current release of FC3, adding selinux compability makes it as secure as you can wish.

P.S. My personal preference goes with FreeBSD, anyway.

FreeBSD is great. Simple, fast, secure, and the ports collection make it VERY easy to install all your software. For the novice, the 'Sysinstall' utility makes things easier in a menu-driven environment.

I would go with FreeBSD very secure and stable, and the ports system is great.
