I would like to call your attention to an inaccuracy in your news article,

where you state:

You have an array of Linux flavors to choose from. Redhat, SUSE, 
Mandrake, Debian, FreeBSD and about 100 plus others to pick from"

FreeBSD is not a Linux distribution, and is derived from a rewrite of 
the 4.4BSD code, not the made-from-scratch Linux.

What you may be confusing is UNIX vs Linux. Linux is a type of UNIX, as 
are the many kinds of BSD.

If you have any questions about this, i'd be happy to help clarify.
