$200k a Month is rather expensive IMHO. We know nothing is free. We know
free (in the same sense as in free beer, though the meaning in its name is
another "free") FreeBSD has monthly expenses, but probably much smaller. I
know (from long existence) FreeBSD likely will still exist and stay free,
so I can rely on this prediction and happily run my FreeBSD servers. The
Monthly cost of, being so high, scares me into scepticism
about it be still free (for "customer") and still exist in some future to
come. I do use for one of our project (they want .org
domain), but for the rest of the servers I get (university centrally
covered) commercial SSL certificates. And this just suggests to keep it
this way.
