Hi Jack,

Of course, most people in the community use the fruit of your labours on 
a daily basis and are pleased with the results.

I have deployed many Pro/1000 cards at home and work using the em driver 
with great success, and I thank you again for your efforts in improving 
the state of the FreeBSD driver.

I am curious about the ixgbe driver as I have never had a chance to play 
with any 10G hardware: is it as fast and reliable as the em-based 1G
