BSD is such a great set of OS'es i prefer them over Linux . I have heard rumblings here where i work about using linux more for corporate tasks. something i am against with out a clear plan and idea of where the cost benifit will be. It was even suggested that we run Linux on our Sparc based servers we have <rolls eyes> (okay so i work with some people that are out of touch) Anyway i would push BSD but its hard to translate superb qualities of BSD and advantages over Linux when they can't even understand how retarded it would be to run Linux on Sparc based SUN hardware especially when companies like RedHat package Linux so nicely.
