So in short, and yes this is repetitive, if you or the other fellow had
chosen us to build you a Server, you and the other fellow would not have
encountered the SMP problem and, you would still be running FreeBSD.
Even worse, multiple times... "FreeBSD SMP for Lannys servers"? ;)
And, no, why should we buy (a) from the US and (b) from a "small" OEM?
Working in a european-wide company has some side effects - for example
a policy to buy only specific servers from specific vendors (which have
to be available in all that countrys). So, there are only the "Big
Players", f.ex. HP, SUN, ...´
Back to track: this is no solution; buying hardware by OS needs and not
by system needs/policy/[insert-any-other-reason]. If the OS doesn't work
with a standard hardware it's simply of no use. Don't get me wrong, I
WANT to use FreeBSD - but this isn't my choice anymore if it does not run
on our typical hardware. I hate to use Linux and I definately hate to
use Solaris (and even pay for that crap).
