Linux is not UNIX! Face it! It is not an insult. It is fact: GNU is a recursive acronym for “GNU's Not UNIX”.

Primus inter pares among Unix systems. But there is some caveat, at least while using the Nvidia blob, superpages are of no use (black screen after starting X).

- support for multiple IPv4 and IPv6 addresses for jails
Thank God for that! 6 months ago I was patching a 7.0-Release system to gain that functionality and it was tough going, I should have just waited. I really respect developers for dedicating their time to bring new functionality to the kernel especially during these financially difficult times. I took a peek at bz's code during the stages of heavily modifying the jail system to incorporate multi ipv4/ipv6 addresses and it is no mean feat getting the job done so soon.

muchas gracias FreeBSD devs!!

Superpages aren't AMD64 specific.

Of course you will experience the biggest gain in terms of performance with quadcore+ cpus (according to some benchmarks of the freebsd devs)
