At some point these things reminded me the old sure way to defeat your
enemy (competitor) whom you can not defeat by force (by better product).
You just join him, then gradually lead him into the "black hole". I'm not
saying this _is_ what is happening, we will know that 5-10 years down the
road, but what I observe has all signs of this process. Luckily I migrated
my servers to UNIX several years ago (workstations still stay Linux


PS Thanks a lot to CentOS team for the great job you, guys and gals, are
doing! We really do use CentOS a lot for what it is good for!
