I just asked our Production Manager, Austin, to write a brief FreeBSD  
5.4 review from the perspective of a systems integrator and  
manufacturer. Frequently, we see FreeBSD supporting server hardware  
that has trouble running CentOS, RedHat Enterprise, etc.

Give him a few days and we'll submit this to BSDNews, DaemonNews, etc.
