LOL! My brother is a full on Linux Guru and he would concur.  Their company
writes JAVA on NT, but ALL of their servers including Firewall, File/Print, Web
host, Email etc are on Linux.  They haven't bought a server yet - they use the
cast-offs from the JAVA programmers!

Jim Oberholtzer mentioned that the IBM Firewall was tough to set up.  I guess I
would have to disagree on that although not if it is your FIRST one.  Our
experience however is that it is not perfectly stable.

I have worked with the SonicWall and it has a reasonably simple Web 
configuration
and the newer ones have DMZ capability.
