A var that has a thriving Linux consultancy and no FreeBSD experience
isn't going to buy into FreeBSD. The only time your going to get a
consultant with no FreeBSD experience into looking at FreeBSD is if they
can't make a go of it with their existing product line, or if they have
never done consulting before and
are just starting out.

This is one of main point I'm trying to make in all of these talks. How are they ever going to know it's out there and when they do make first contact don't you think we should greet them in a professional manner?

Sorry if I mangled the message a bit when I cut out all the fluff.
