Generally speaking, use the Unix-like OS you're most comfortable with (be
it FreeBSD, Linux, Solaris, etc). If you tune them well, you can get good
performance from any of them.

Strictly speaking, a well tuned Linux 2.4/Reiserfs/aufs seems to be the
most efficient mix for high traffic squids. FreeBSD w/softupdates isn't
far behind.
