A tip for those threatened with no BSD box at work:
FreeBSD runs fine _inside_ a box that looks like a multi sheet scanner.
OK, slow, but invisible to managers who require MS only.
These scanners often lie abandoned in company junk rooms (& cheap
on web), as people know they used to need MS's abandoned NT (= Not
There) operating system. Well they do ... until one installs BSD.
