Huh, cool indeed!
Two month ago i've been called to help with a small FreeBSD-based
gateway which stopped working after electrical troubles (it was a
rainy day before hehe).
After i came to the place, the only thing i had to do with a box is
just change the dead NIC.
The OS there is FreeBSD 5.3-RELEASE, and the box was setup and
forgotten just in two or three days after release.
It hasn't been touched by anyone since then :)
For me this really proves how stable my favourite OS is :)
