The desktop Java re-emergence has been driven by a number of factors, one being the emergence of rich client vendors providing frameworks to display Web content in a meaningful way.
Do you ever have the feeling that you've spent lots of money for a developer tool without gaining the productivity boost you were hoping for? Do you find it hard to track the status of your development against the project requirements?

This article examines three of the basic subsystems of the kernel and compares implementation between Solaris 10, Linux 2.6, and FreeBSD 5.3. The three subsystems examined are scheduling, memory management, and file system architecture.
