Is there a list of equipment that WMF uses without viable FLOSS alternatives, please? I can currently buy what appears to be incredibly cost effective RAID-5 network attached storage and powerful database and web servers meeting what I believe to be current WMF requirements for throughput with FLOSS solutions based on NetBSD, FreeBSD, Debian, or CentOS from apparently reputable and highly-rated consumer outlets for a tiny fraction of the cost that was necessary from wholesale vendors in 2009, when for some reason beyond my present recollection I did the same exercise.
