This is not for any current employment (future?), so I guess it would be self-flagellation.

But I do want to try the Ethernet way, may need to buy an Ethernet switch or router.

I also intend to build a Linux installation, don't really want to be without that.

Linux has the best hardware and software support of any open-source OS; I don't think there is any argument about that: not to downgrade FreeBSD.
