What I do with FreeBSD.
I currently have about 6 boxen running various things here at home, some
being boxen i try something out in case it trashes a live box, which I
must admit it is quite hard to break something badly.
These range from smtp,pop, webmail, www, proxy etc and of course a
multimedia server hosting a bucket load of mp3 collections.
I have one server dedicated for just streaming media for internal use only.
Since I travel a lot, i like to have access to my own music and tv
programs dumped from my pvr.
By far the most useful thing is jails. I have a number of them handy
when i really want to try and break things.
About the only linux thing I have is my smoothie. This is due to be
replaced by monowall, a BSD based system.
For work I mostly use Solaris and Microsoft's Services for Unix which is
also a bsd based system on which our products are installed on.
