Description

If you're running on Solaris, OpenBSD, NetBSD, or old FreeBSD, Tor is probably forking separate processes rather than using threads. 

That's not really true: most (all) of those have kernel threads now, and I think that we use threads everywhere besides Solaris so long as it has pthreads at all.

Tor relays work best on Linux, FreeBSD 5.x+, OS X Tiger or later, and Windows Server 2003.

That list can't be right, can it? I think we'd recommend more recent FreeBSD, OSX, and Windows. And we should really distinguish server from client OS.

Does your patch for https://www.torproject.org/docs/faq#BestOSForRelay fix this? Or this more information we need to give users?
