I'd recommend using FreeBSD. The BSD networking in these packages are a lot more solid than linuxes. Linux networking is still continously being hacked, although its getting there slowly. Don't get me wrong. Linux is great. I run it here at home myself. But when running a net-intensive application, I'd prefer one of the freeBSD's. -- Zima zux!
