I agree.  I found linuxconf to be very unintuitive.  It was easier to work
with the files in /etc.

This is true.  But sendmail is/was open source and has been ported to a
lot of architectures if I recall.

I'm assuming you're talking about teleport?  Never really cared much for
them.  I've been working primarily with aracnet who uses Linux/Solaris.  I
get good support from them for my Linux box. (heck I guess with solaris
too if I wanted it. :-)

I would have gone with FreeBSD as I find that they handle I/O a lot
