I got my first fanless PCs to use as game servers. I have
3 machines and will make one a dedicated firewall and
the other two load-balanced web / game servers. I will be
running from flash memory and RAM, but will network
to a bigger machine to hold any DB or log info.
I am thinking to make the firewall machine a BSD setup
(and probably the others as well), but have been using
Linux up to now. A few questions for others more familiar
1) Which should I use? NetBSD, FreeBSD or OpenBSD
and why? I am inclined right now to use the one with the
best tutorial on how to set up a diskless firewall.
2) Does erlang run better or differently on any of the three?
3) Who out there is using erlang + BSD and what kind of
experiences have they encountered?
4) Any tricks to compiling erlang for these OSes?
