[PLUG] Embarq DSL/VoIP/TV in NJ?

Anyone use or know anyone using Embarq over in NJ, for TV, Internet and 
VoIP bundle?  My Mom keeps getting offers to switch from Comcast (was 
some crappy local place Comcast bought).  She lives in the boonies (near 
78/31 intersection), so these services have always been some half-assed 
no-name company that mostly sucked.  As far as I can tell, Embarq is now 
the phone ILEC...

Thus far Comcast has been more-or-less working, and I'm not sure I want 
to mess with it, or switch her to DSL.  It *may* be a cost savings, I 
don't have the numbers yet.

For a (really lame) attempt on on-topic-ness, do they work with Linux 
and your own firewall, as opposed to some of the older really annoying 
PPPoE stuff?

"Microsoft Tax" = the additional hardware & yearly fees for the add-on
software required to protect Windows from its own poorly designed and
implemented self, while the overhead incidentally flattens Moore's Law.
