Ironically the latest server I got last night has a intel pro 1000 a rarity :)

I am just giving feedback as when I speak to people in the datacentre
and hosting business the biggest gripe with freebsd is hardware
compatability, as I adore freebsd I ignore this and work round it but
its defenitly reducing take up.

Of course I know current re issues are getting attention which I am
thankful for, I fully understand the time and effort required to write
drivers patches etc. and have got no critisicms for the people who do
this my complaint is more focused on people claiming there is no
issues its just the hardware.
