Maybe consider the chance that a FreeBSD OS can be
turned into closed source (which the license explicitely
allows) and put into some embedded device, a router,
a DSL modem, a managed switch... In parts like this,
you won't recognize FreeBSD anymore. If you consider
such devices "niche devices", think again: You'll
find them near any Internet-connected computer and
among the bowels of the whole Internet. :-)
