Is Debian Linux different from Debian KFreeBSD

What is the difference between FreeBSD and Linux?

FreeBSD is derived from the BSD line. It is based on a 100% paraphrase from AT&A. Ts original. Although AT & amp; T initially had legal issues hindering its expansion, it was eventually resolved (when it was found that AT&T had been using BSD code, the tables spun). Hence, it is 100% free and free of known legal claims. It is licensed under the "BSD License" which is very liberal and allows redistribution for profit reasons.

Linux is a 100% imbalanced system V. It was started by a Finnish programmer who brought several other people together. Over time, the "Linux kernel" grew in developers and lines of code and added new functions. It also had its share of legal issues raised by the SCO group trying to claim ownership of some of the kernel code. To date, no illegal code has been found and there have been speculative links between SCO's actions and a large sum of money Microsoft "gave" them. This was controversial at the time because Linux uses a version 2 GPL license, which requires that all publicly released programs (a) have the source code freely available, (b) be available under the same license, and (c) must contain a reference to the original author.

Both systems are pretty stable. Both have a long history of development. Both have active development communities and are unlikely to go away anytime soon.

When it comes to server network support, the historical consensus is usually on the side of the BSDs, which have been shown to handle heavy connections and loads. In terms of ubiquity, Linux can be found in the most surprising of places and has a thriving software culture.

To answer your question about web server applications, I'd probably prefer BSD. The basis for the selection is that the BSD network stack (historically) has a slight lead over Linux. For back-end deployment, the flexibility and ubiquity of Linux distributions means that I have a wide range of software at my disposal. Yes, for the BSD lovers there is the software available through the BSD port program.

It is much easier to find Linux administrators, however, a potential factor affecting deployment. If this is a rapidly changing or growing installation, finding BSD Talent can create a work problem in your deployment.

So - it depends. :) Do you need full-time employees? Stick with Linux. Are you looking for a large site deployment on smaller hardware? BSD could work for you.
