Is it really necessary to differentiate between a ISP which provides linux connectivity or windows connectivity or both?

Over here in Bombay, I have been able to connect to 3 separate ISPs using Linux - no problems whatsoever. TOUCHWOOD! And I never cared whether they supported windows or linux.

Give it a whirl, try connecting to your current ISP.

There is no such thing.
You pick any ISP. All are compatible with All OS.
But the only thing is you have to learn how to setup your Linux Box. It's nothing to do with ISP.

I live in WA, and Verizon works just fine for me, it's all DHCP so nothing was a problem, it was all "picked up" easily.

Cool

But there is one thing.
If you subscribe broadband (single user), most of the ISP give you the broadband modem and software only for the windows. In this case you need to setup your own thing.

so I think you are looking for the ISP which supports the modem and software installation for Linux ?
Yeah! that make sense.
