In your view.  It actually runs on at least three platforms today, and 
likely four tomorrow, and it runs well enough for many users.  For NTP 
timekeeping can be at the sub-millisecond level, which may or may not meet 
your requirements.

FYI: "bested" is not English. "only Linux runs on more".

Yes, and I am finding the great drawbacks of that!  Swings and 
roundabouts.  I find it less productive, but likely that's just me.  Note 
that I do use FreeBSD where it's the best tool for the job.

Thanks for your input.
