since it's gpl and there are bsd alternatives, i don't run it anywhere.
but the author's a smart guy and it's easy to believe that the support
and documentation and software he offers is top notch.

switching hats for a moment, is there anything isc could do to make bind9
more useful or attractive to you?  granted that we make no money from the
software itself (only development and support contracts), i'm nevertheless
concerned about any reasons you'd have for switching away from it.
