Be careful.

I use FreeBSD and I love it, I've used it for years and am not going  
back to Linux.  BUT!, your entry expectations wrt progress, the level  
of support, and many other things differ from the Linux world.

I have 15 blades up 24X7, and one controller machine, and another 10  
or so satellites, all running FreeBSD 6.1 or 6.2.

And we have had our share of problems.  For example, some key aspects  
of clusterit have never worked for us.  So we moved on and have made  
to with one or two (now,) excellent home-brew solutions.  But running  
FreeBSD is not going to be like running Linux.  On the other hand,  
you'll get a lot of work done that with Linux, you'd never be able to  
do, because Linux has it's own kind of troubles.

I use these machines for research and some production applications  
and don't need GUI's or lot's of access to the internet.  A few  
minutes a day is all.  So we don't see attacks and such.
