FWIW, we use Debian at MidcoNet, but not as completely as I'd like.  The
management has decided that we need a "supported" OS, so the web server
and news server are BSDI.  The secondary nameserver, dial server, and
test server(s) are Debian.  If there was a Caldera-like company
supporting Debian we'd move to that as soon as I won the argument :)

We may move to Caldera anyway, but I'm not wild about the RPM based
distribution - I've heard horror stories about upgrading.

Has anyone heard any rumors re: commercial support for Debian?  It's
difficult to change management ways that have been in place for decades:
they're convinced that we need support that we pay for. <shrug>
