Seeking list of "commercial companies that still have large scale FreeBSD deployment"

If HP is not really going to support FreeBSD, then maybe Dell is a better way to 
go as Dell's purchase of Kace will keep them supporting FreeBSD for quite some 
time. Though because Kace is appliance based, Dell only has to make it work on a 
few Dell servers.

It actually surprises me when people choose GPL-based Operating Systems for 
appliances over the BSD Licensed software.  It seems like such a licensing issue 
to sell an appliance with a GPL product when an OS that is just as good or 
better is free of those licensing issues.
