Well, first it reflects on their judgement. If they run on FreeBSD, I give them credit for better jedgement. Secondly, if you have problems or questions, you are more likely to get an intelligent answer if they run one of the BSDs. If they run MS, they are more likely to just say they don't support anything different when you ask. ////jerry > > See how their service has been in the past and if their service meets > your needs, that's all there really is to it.
