How much more official can this get: http://www.testdrive.hp.com/os/#bsd
How can a company officially support an operating system that does not have a development organization that will guarentee a response on a problem? Doing so would be tanasmount to assuming FreeBSD development, all that would happen is that anyone that has any problem with FreeBSD could simply buy a HP server then whammo - instant free FreeBSD custom programming. Notice that while HP lists support for Linux, the fine print does not support ALL Linux distributions. You have no guarentee that any piece of hardware you buy will be supported on any future revision of FreeBSD, or even Windows for that matter. I have lots of Intel gear in my basement that was supported on various Windows versions in the past, which cannot run today's Windows. Your being unrealistic.
