And I suspect that most of that conventional wisdom emanates from the
BSD camp. I would expect that the Linux camp would have the opposite
view, with the NT camp thinking we're both crazy.

IMHO BSD vs. Linux vs. NT is 10% objective and 90% subjective.
I prefer BSD (however, I have _never_ _ever_ been anywhere near a Linux
box), but then again, I _know_ I'm crazy ;)
