[ntp:questions] Surplus Alpha as timeserver?

What OS should I run? Linux, FreeBSD or Tru64?

The AlphaStation is almost a decade old. But a quick testing over
night with NTP shows a respectable clock drift below 2ppm.

The goal is to set the machine up as a public reachable time
server. In due time with a local GPS refclock.

I am mostly a Linux guy, but there is no PPSkit for Linux/alpha. 
FreeBSD/alpha might be better as suggested by 

Is FreeBSD/alpha as good as FreeBSD/x86? What about Tru64?

Any suggestions?
