I run on FreeBSD as a development platform, as it gives me the feeling of=20
stability, familiarity with what we used to work back in school years (SunO=
S=20
BSD), the feeling that it is here to stay, the serious attitude of the peop=
le=20
in the FreeBSD world, + plus it fits best the developer with a unix=20
background who likes to understand whats done behind the scenes.
Talking about java, back in 1.4 days, not many OSs had the easiness
for the developer to browse thru the JDK java sources as in FreeBSD.
(Well back then building from source was the only option, but had a benefic=
ial=20
side effect!)

Yes

Yes

java version "1.5.0" (diablo-1.5.0-b00) ,
java version "1.4.2_12" (linux-sun-jdk1.4.2 1.4.2_12-b03)

back in native 1.4.2 years, it was pain.
Diablo 1.5 was easy

A little, more of a prestige thing, and the feeling that FreeBSD java is al=
ive
and well, rather than a real need.
