Hi Folks

I am about to put together a little time server for my office network
based on a Trimble ACE II GPS unit and a single-board computer with a
Pentium MMX CPU.

Assuming that the main function of this computer is to run ntpd with
PPS, what is the current best choice of OS - also taking into
consideration the fact that it is a computer with limited resources in
todays terms.  Linux or one of the BSDs?
