I knew (most of) Yahoo! ran on FreeBSD. I didn't realize they also were 
a sponsor of it.

I just wish they would update the  Linux version of Yahoo! Messenger to 
be equal to the current Windows version in features. Pidgin/Kopete are 
nice but they simply don't offer all the features that the native 
clients do.

I've never used an OS I didn't (dis)like.
