One thing to add about the filesystem, is the long fsck's(File system checks) 
you have to go threw in linux. If you dont umount properly or your machine 
crashes, Linux will make you sit threw long checks, taking almost 5 mins(on 
6gig) to be completed. In the future linux will have a Journaling File System 
and hopefully FreeBSD will the also.
