Actually in this context this information is useful. And tone matters too,
remember. This has been a good thread, IMHO.

That's interesting. I used SuSE for like 3 years. It always "felt" well
organized with respect to configuration scripts, but I wasn't sure if that
was me just being naive or what? I'm not systems guru, so I wasn't sure.
It just felt better. The last few RHEL releases, though, have been very
good in this respect.

Why do you always have to do this? Make it personal. No one is out to get
you. There's no witch hunt. I think this thread has been very productive
and interesting, personally. You're not getting on my nerves right now.
This conversation has been very instructive and interesting to me.
