I've installed FreeBSD 5.2 on a spare SCSI drive and am compiling kernels,
updating ports, etc,etc. Thus far, other than some minor hassles, it's
equivilent to my Debian sid.

I have to ask: Why FreeBSD rather than Linux?

Honest question.

Honestly though Jeff - You sound like an experienced user, at the risk of starting the war again, It really boils down to a lot of personal preference. We use freebsd because we like freebsd, we like the communitiy, etc, etc, etc. My choice boils down to 2 things.

/usr/ports/.../... # make install


/usr/src # make world(ish)

From the server standpoint, if you know what your doing, given enough time, you can do pretty much anything you could want to with either.
