    • Jails are a light-weight alternative to virtualization. Allowing processes to be restricted to a namespace with access only to the file systems and network addresses assigned to that namespace. Jails are also Hierarchical, allowing jails-within-jails. 
    • The FreeBSD community focuses more on tech than on licensing and political activism like a certain freeware Unix “alike”
    • The ports system. The ports system does a far better job of balancing tracking recent software releases and stability than other systems of the same sort.The Ports Collection is a set of more than 23,000 third party applications that can be easily installed and run on FreeBSD. The ports architecture also allows for easy customization of the compile time options of many of the applications.
      • FreeBSD is the system of choice for high performance network. FreeBSD known for its ability to handle heavy network traffic with high performance and rock solid reliability
      • A kick-ass combo of features and totally server-focused
      • Well-structured OS (i.e. filesystem, kernel and its config, etc) 
      • Firewalls. The base system includes IPFW and IPFilter, as well as a modified version of the popular pf with improved SMP performance. IPFW also includes the dummynet feature, allowing network administrators to simulate adverse network conditions, including latency, jitter, packet loss and limited bandwidth.
  • The community – Unlike Linux which is very fragmented by all the different flavours and hence individual communities, FreeBSD has one community who are always happy to help with hints tips and advice. This simply cant be beaten!
  • The BSD license. Contrary to popular belief, it has brought a lot of high quality development to FreeBSD
  • Universal toolkit. It scales easily from the thinnest embedded system, to various desktops to huge servers – all with the same familiar tools and environment
  • Stability
