Amazon announced their "reserved instances" for EC2 I noticed a mention of
FreeBSD in their FAQ:

Q: What operating system environments are supported?

Amazon EC2 currently supports a variety of operating systems including:
RedHat Linux, Windows Server, openSuSE Linux, Fedora, Debian, OpenSolaris,
Cent OS, Gentoo Linux, Oracle Linux, and FreeBSD. We are looking for ways to
expand it to other platforms in future releases.
My understanding was that this wasn't happening until 8.0 release at
earliest, which may be some time from now. Just a typo?
