How reliable or better freebsd is? I was thinking to use it in production server instead of ubuntu 16 LTS. I've heard it has pretty good networking stack and whatsapp uses it in their prod machines.

    Go for it. Because it's not a "distribution" type of platform like Linux, there's less chance for differences like Ubuntu vs CentOS/RHEL. It would make each deployment easier to troubleshoot because there are less variables. Also, I think FreeBSD is a rolling release and does not require upgrades, just updates.

    @rjcrystal It's rock solid, even Netflix uses it for their infrastructure if I'm not mistaken.

    @TonyG I think because it can cause a flame war it's fine.
