For the sole purpose of learning a new OS, of course.  I work in 
academia, so I'm constantly searching out new things to learn to better 
myself, and thus, to better the research goals of the Institute.  I had 
a spare dual-proc box laying around, and two spare gigE nics, so I 
figured...why not learn how to make a FreeBSD firewall?  I've done 
firewalls with RedHat, IPCOP, SmoothWall, and purchased DLink and 
Linksys solutions, and now want to move on to someting else.  :)
