Bleh, I did an LFS a while ago, but once I got done I ended up installing apt on it anyway...

Hmm, I don't see a ton of gnu/linux in corporate production environments where I've been, but the move from "supported" distris to ones like Debian makes sense to me, because once the staff gets comfortable with the administration, the management begins to realize that they're paying for support they aren't using. Also, corporate geeks like Debian for the same reasons that civilian geeks do.
