I was referring to the virtual memory fiasco that has plagued much of the 
2.4 series kernels, and still comes up regularly on the Linux kernel 
mailing list as an issue that doesn't seem to be resolved in some 
environments.  I'm not interested in starting a flamewar, but I think both 
Linux and the BSDs (FreeBSD in particular I mostly refer to) have a set of 
strengths and weaknesses, and to say that the only differences between 
them are non-technical seems very short-sighted.
