Hi Folks,

Any opinions on the advantages/disadvantages of running postgres on
Linux vs running it on freebsd?

Also, under either OS would a dual processor machine run faster than a
single processor one. For the most part, I know that databases are IO
bound rather than CPU, bound so more memory and more and faster disks
are a main issue. Still, it seems like being able to use multiple cpus
could improve performance.

Finally, is SCSI still such a big improvement over modern IDE drives?
