I have run Snort for a little while now, and would like to begin some 
side-by-side comparisons with other NIDS. I am looking to test usability, 
reliability and performance, primarily. I imagine the latter of the two 
criteria will vary significantly depending upon the number and types of rules 
used, and O/S Snort is implemented upon. Which leads to my question..

I wanted to know if any of you had a preference as to running Snort on Free 
or Open BSD. Which do you think will be more reliable? Which will perform 
better? Also, regardless of the OS implemented, I plan on recompiling the 
kernel, and performing other optimizations. If any of you have any specific 
suggestions regarding this, please feel free to interject.

Thanks in advance for the information. I look forward to the repsonses.
