No, the crux of FreeBSD's problem is the differing opinion on how
serious we want to be taken.

I for instance, do not want "the commercial world", (by which we
in this case means "application producing companies") to take us
anymore serious than we are able to be.

Being realistic about our capacity and ability is far more important
to everybody, than promising specific goals of dubious reachability.

Never attribute to malice what can adequately be explained by incompetence.
