Ubiquiti runs out of product for 2 - 3 months at a time.  Disruptive
(a GOOD thing) projects like CentOS and companies like Ubiquiti often
see imbalances between supply and demand.

While a dry-as-a-bone distribution channel is not good for NEW
business, it is the old business (some subscribers have been with us
since 1995) that is most important.

Part of taking care of the old business is that our smallish farm of ~
30 servers running CentOS, FreeBSD and Windows Server operate well.
