In some ways it is more officially supported than by other ISPs. Sonic 
does have a linux shell machine with user logins. They have linux colo's 
that you can get from them. They have pretty good support for linux in 
their sonic newsgroups. And they do have techs that speak linux altho its 
not the guy at the end of the customer service line. But you can usually 
connect up with them with abit of effort.

I also like the way that they actually HAVE Sonic newsgroups. They support 
"Internet" more than many ISPs. I think they might actually support more 
of the internet protocols than just about anyone I have looked into (such 
as the list of what else can go in place of http in the http:// URL)

I am also amazed at their MOTD. One, that they actually have one. Two, 
that they have it available in so many different ways. And Three, that 
they put so much information there. Most ISPs wont tell you things that 
went wrong if they think you wouldnt be able to tell it went wrong. 
Incredibly open and honest for an ISP.
