Hello all,
There seems to be an administrative tendency at our Organisation, to
move over to *BSD, cos it handles packet sniffing better than
Linux and other things.
There have been many claims of incurring very high losses of upto 50%
on Linux boxes, whereas on BSD it is supposed to be of the order of a
fraction of 1% while packet sniffing.
Could some Linux God please clarify the truth in this matter ?? How
is Linux better than *BSD then ??

Thanking you for your time,
