Its not exactly a big secret what companies want. I know what 
they want, most of the people I work with knows what they want, 
the whole idea of the company I work for is to try and provide 
atleast a part of what some companies want. They want something 
that works, and when it doesnt work, they want to know who to 
blame. Big players like IBM is willing to take on the roll as the 
one to blame, in exchange for compensation of course, and that is 
what FreeBSD needs. A big company that is willing to take the 
blame if something fails. But as long as we look like a hobby 
project no big company will ever be interested in taking on that 
role for us.

Like it or not, but being professional is not enough, you have to 
look professional too.
