I use smoothwall at home it's pretty good I must say.
There are things in ISA has that smoothwall , or linux won't have
* Active Directory- ISA Server can leverage the Windows 2000 Active
Directory to provide scaleable and centralized administration of Windows
Users & Groups, ISA Access Policies, and ISA Server Configuration
* Networking and Security Features- QoS for bandwidth prioritization.
* Windows technologies & Windows-based applications- ISA Server
leverages core OS services like authentication, Event logs and the MMC
administration tool. Support for Windows applications like Exchange Server,
NetMeeting and Windows Media makes configuring and managing application
* Unified Policy and Access Control
* Unified Management
Depends on your needs, you have a windows network? or linux only ?
