You gotta be more specific than FW-1.  FW-1 can run over a large number
of OS.  You can get FW-1 for WinNT, Solaris, Linux, BSD . Each has the
strengths and weaknesses of the underlying OS.  Also FW-1 can run on a
large number of hardware platforms, PCI, Compact-PCI, Sparc, etc.  Each
has it's strengths and weaknesses.

I couldn't find the original for this in my inbox but the poster is wrong.

For details on what platforms FW-1 is really supported on, see this
document:
