I've used BIND since 4.x in the ISP world, so it was the first DNS
software I touched and I still like it the best.  Originally inherited
tinydns here and never enjoyed the "static" nature of the product
(eventually got used to the different format and even started to
appreciate the simplicity of adding records), so moved everything over to
BIND a couple quarters ago.  Serving around 10k clients internally.  More
if you count other groups using it whose infrastructure I don't directly
manage, much more externally but only as Akamai EDNS origins.

Also using PowerDNS in a limited role, with plans to increase that in
coming months (hidden masters for internal and external views providing
web UIs for L1 folks and replication for DR).  So I continue to like and
respect the BIND project, but also appreciate efforts from others.
