Would anyone on this list working at a UK ISP be willing to
comment on Planet Online's use of Linux as their main
server OS.  (as evidenced by their recruitment ads).

As Planet Online are the people providing dial-up access for Freeserve,
I'd have thought that Linux would be a poor choice for a heavily
loaded server.  

Is Linux (in any guise) as suitable for a (big) ISP as *BSD?
I was under the impression that conventional wisdom would answer
"no" to this question.
