Don't worry, you will end up using FreeBSD anyway.  <g>

Since my argument so important, I will give it here: FreeBSD works,
Linux is cool.  <g>  Whatever you do I'm sure both will work fine
(although I am quite leery about a lot of Linux things... but that's
your problem, not mine), I just think FreeBSD is nicer, more stable
development wise, more stable under load, and less of a security
hassle.  Not that Linux is inherently more secure than FreeBSD,
but it tends to be more a mish-mash of different software and there
are, of course, more people writing stupid exploits to break into
Linux boxes.

Your box, your choice, your life.  I certainly won't loose sleep either
