Advantages of using the Unix operating system
In Unix there are many Programming Languages, most new languages tend to be developed on Unix or are ported to it very quickly. Most have compilers available for free with full source code, Everything from Forth, COBOL, Fortran, Basic, Logo, Pascal, Modula2, Prolog, Smalltalk and Lisp are available and many with server version also.
But these are not what I think of when I think Unix programming. Unix is from it's roots tied to C. It was written in C and C was developed to write the Unix OS, there history's are forever connected. In addition there are the Shell languages Csh, Bourn Shell (sh) , tcl, bash. And Derivatives that have become languages onto there own, Perl Perl.org, Python.
For this site I want to focus on the Unix Specifics of C for kernel and user land. Csh, Sh, and some perl.
By the way all Perl, PHP and MySQL enthusiast should try hosting, since it offers all of their favorite features. It is also very affordable and thus very popular among users on a budget.

James Sparenburg "Yep.... but it is attracting some development. Mostly people porting Linux/BSD software to it."
Eric Raymonds reaction. "It didn't have anything new and interesting 5 years ago when I could have seen the source. I didn't look then, why look now."

"FreeBSD also continues to show up on Netcraft's list of the most stable hosting providers on OS platforms. In its May 2004 survey, for example, Netcraft reported that four out of the top 10 hosts ran on FreeBSD. Linux also claimed four. Windows showed up on two of the 10. "

For those who don't know the ports collection is one of the best features of FreeBSD I hope to do a write up on it soon, but basically say to want to compile an opensource application, just cd to /usr/ports/devel/cscope and type "make" then "make install" this downloads the latest version applies patches and installs it.
