...and now I'll elaborate on my last reply...

After I had thought about my comment, I realized that it might of
implied that some of my boxen were unreliable because of FreeBSD.

Of course that is the farthest from the truth, due to the fact that I
have never had a failure due to the FreeBSD OS itself [1], but always
problems occur because hardware failures. I still have boxen that run
FBSD 4.3 for legacy purposes, and it has *never* failed.

FreeBSD 4.3 - FreeBSD 6.2 currently in production. 7.0 in testing. It
just works. I was just hoping the BSDie logo's would make my hardware
think twice about failing ;)

[1] -- unless it was my negligence or -current testing that I was doing
on non-production gear.

Yay for BSDie! This thread will eventually turn into a flame war, so I
may as well put in my piece now!
