Here is a hint for you: compare the prices of an F5 Load Balancer with the cost of a small OpenBSD machine running relayd.
Now, try to do the same with Cisco vs OpenBSD. Go ahead, I'll wait.
If OpenBSD + relayd + httpd allow you to load balance web applications by using commodity, off-the-shelf hardware vs expensive, closed-source, proprietary solutions, savings (very) quickly add up.
On a more positive note, I ordered the book today.
