That's exactly what I had in my mind. From my experience, in larger
corporations the adoption of FreeBSD is somewhat harder due to the
business models these corporations are based upon. When they buy
hardware from vendors like HP, EMC, IBM they also buy a whole fully
supported software package that comes with it, and that means usually
RHEL or even HP-UX/AIX. DataPipe and NYI are a nice exception to the
general rule. Any Yahoo! sysadmins on this list? Has Yahoo got data
centers located in NY/NJ areas running FreeBSD?
