That's a very good advocacy thing to do, but IMHO this is something an ISP 
can't really bank on. Think about it, it wouldn't bring in ^many^ new 
customers by declaring that a registrar uses only NetBSD or any other OS 
for that matter. It would simply segregate the other customers who like 
Windows for example. Anyway such advertising has both its pros and cons.

My favorite and cheapest domain name registrar is/are:

1) or
2) - Its French, but very reliable.

Anyway, everyone would have their favorites.

As for a DNS registrar, I've found:

1) - The ^most^ reliable and efficient out there! 
Bloody amazing service and a great tech support!
2) - Free 'n good. A bit bizarre an interface 
but simple if you know named zone files.
