They certainly did me, back when DSL was first being offered in the
Washington area. The conversation went like this:
me: "I don't have Windows. I have Linux."
Verizon: "Then we can't support you."
me: "I'll support myself."
Verizon: "I'm sorry, we can't sell it to you."
me: "Is there no way you will sell me the service if I don't have Windows?"
I don't know what they're doing today. This was, after all, at least
four, possibly as much as 8 or 9, years ago.
