While trying to introduce FreeBSD into a Micro$oft only house, I've heard the 
following many times:

"Never heard of FreeBSD" and "Show me some documentation and stats".

Regardless of the actual version, the stats are accurate for those providers. 
They reflect overall uptime and connectivity. This isn't about version, it's 
about FreeBSD gaining a firmer foothold in a Micro$oft / Linux dominant 
world. Personally, I'll take all the help I can get.

'nuff said,
