I'm only mentioning this because people have asked about it in the past.
Yesterday EverythingLinux put on it's first paying ADSL customer with
no hitches. We used a Pulsar ADSL PCI card which has binary-only drivers
for certification reasons. I think we were lucky with the Telstra side
taking about a fortnight from memory.
As mentioned before we'll only support Linux servers plugged into the
ADSL. It's for businesses that are sick of being told "Oh sorry we don't
support Linux" when contacting their provider for help. Basically we can
now do full end-to-end support of the service (barring physical line
faults). Another useful option is the backup dialup service with the same
login, password and same fixed IP address.
