The point where it hurts them is when I prefer stuffs having FreeBSD
support even while purchasing/recommending hardware for windows. I do
a lot consulting for companies which have a mix of BSD/Linux and
Windows servers. This is more so in case of RAID cards for me, where I
would go in for 3Ware rather than Promise or other brands.
I must admit though that it is not always possible to follow this
rule, but I amke it a point to follow it as closely as possible in the
given circumstances. As somebody has already written earlier, one
should pick the best tool for the job. But if I have a approximately
similar performance options from two or more hardware, my choice would
automatically go in for one that supports *BSD.
There are practical reasons for this sort of policy, not just
ideological. In two years, if you need to retarget a server from
Windows to FreeBSD for a new project, then you can still use the
equipment since you did you homework 2 years earlier.
