I run fBSD at home (mail, file serving, mostly) and migrated there from
Red Hat (6? can't remember) and SuSE, largely because of maintenance
difficulties. The fBSD box is headless and all my UI interaction is
through OSX (an iBook). Think I've been running this since about 2000.
At work we use Red Hat 9 and a smattering of RH Enterprise (and all the
office admin people use Windows, damn them), as well as hundreds of
embedded computers, mostly running vxWorks (eww) or a rather strange
custom Linux brew. So no BSD, alas.

I have to say I find the freebsd-questions list too high in traffic to
