This confuses me a little. Wouldn't FreeBSD be the more economical route? I can't imagine saving money moving from FreeBSD to one of those listed. FreeBSD is free and seems to take less administration hours than those others. Certainly you do not gain anything in quality or reliability. Oh, I see in re-reading that it is not your company, but your potential new service provider that wants to force you to switch OS. Well, there is more than one way to gain economy. Switching to something inferior - of poorer service level is not a gain in economy. So, maybe you should try suggesting FreeBSD to that provider. All they need to do is insert the install CD in to the machine anyway. You can do the rest. ////jerry > >> > >> > >I doubt you'll find anything suitable after getting accustomed to > >FreeBSD. > > > >-- > >http://www.home.no/reddvinylene > >_______________________________________________ > >firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list > >http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions > >To unsubscribe, send any mail to > >"freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org" > > > > > > _______________________________________________ > email@example.com mailing list > http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions > To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org" > _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
