Three things . . .

1: OS X (Leopard) due out in September has been declared to be Unix. Here's a link to a slash dot article. (I first saw it on Tech Net, I think, but couldn't find the reference.)
So to the guy who wants to be convinced, what you probably want is relief from Windows.
Get a Mac whenthe new OS X is available.
2: I'm now pouring over everything I can find about making a reliable backup/ I've just gotten FBSD 6.2 installed with the minimum of my favorite utilities and programs. I want to save the configuration as it is so that . . .
3: I'm going to try to install an rpm package directly. (i.e., install an rpm file in using Linux environment) I want to use NX server, but I thought of trying the stuff directly from Nomachine. I read an account (O'Reilly network article?) of a guy who has done it a few times. If it fails and I screw up the uninstall, I'll restore my system and go ahead with Freenx.
Given my track record with stuff when I go "Hmmmm, Wonder if . . . " I want to at least be able to restore to the point where I am, now.
(Cross your fingers for me, you guys!)
