And did any other ISP do even this much for linux users? I never claimed 
they wrote something from scratch.
And did you bother to document the workaround / solution and share it 
with others?

Proof will be enough to shut me up.. i have no love of reliance, but i 
think the are doing a decent job OR at least tried doing one (they all 
do until they get a majority of the subscribers and then leech them).

can we EOT this?? we have a new enthusiastic user to help.
