We moved to freebsd around 3 years ago, (from RH). Now we run everything
on it, and dont have any reason to change.
I heard through a college that the UK BACS system runs BSD (OpenBSD I
think)....or at least it was a few months ago.
If/when we hire more BSD system admins, my first point of call for the
job spec will be here, if only to get some feedback on the requirements.
