FreeBSD 4.0 Review!

I was making my daily pilgrimage to Slashdot and noticed a link to this review of FreeBSD 4.0. Needless to say the author seems quite taken with it.
At the risk of sounding like a zealot, I will say that FreeBSD 4.0 is faster than any operating system I have ever had on any of my computers. This is not hyperbole or just upgrade fever talking here - the machine boots quicker and the programs I have loaded - like Applixware - just seem to pop up without delay. The developers mention on the FreeBSD homepage that the virtual memory system has been worked over - and if this is the reason for the impressive improvement in speed, I am all for it.
