On my Debian box I use vsftpd, couldn't be happier with it.  Real
lightweight, good throughput, and no known buffer overflows or anything :)
Can't be too bad - ftp.redhat.com runs on it, as does ftp.openbsd.org

On my FreeBSD boxes I use lukemftpd, so far, there isn't much of a
difference, lukemftpd can do a couple things that vsftpd can't - like chroot
and kerberos/S-key  authentication
