I'd like to agree - I few freinds an myself run a small non-profit isp
completly on free software - a few things, e.g. automatic maintaince
and syncronization  of services, wachtdogs, etc are self-developed,
and lots of packeages needs to be self-compiled to add certen features
or to work properly under high load (e.g. sendmail, cyrus, zebra).

The only plug-and-play solutions we bought were come small ciscos and
ascend routers.

It is all stable enough to run 24/7/365 and only maintain it in our 
leasure time....
