    Open Source TCP/IP better

    Well knows there’s a study to confirm what most of us already know. Linux has a kick ass implementation of TCP/IP.

    "The open-source implementation of TCP/IP in the Linux kernel clearly exhibits a higher code quality than commercial implementations in general-purpose operating systems," the company said in a report released last week. Reasoning also compared the code with that used in two special-purpose networking products and found it superior to one of them"

    Was there ever doubt? I mean besides what comes from MS and Sun.

    And where's the comparison to FreeBSD?

    Both stacks have inherent flaws. I would give the edge to linux though, but not by much.
