Well, the hype certainly put the zap on your head.
"Wonders"? So, if I take a picture of a van Gogh
painting, copy it as poorly as a three-year-old child,
put an OSI license on it and call it "open van Gogh"
that would be wonderous?
They are copying known work, shooting for a target
that has already been hit. Ignore IBM's and ESR's
hype. Linux is a rather poor re-implementation. The
BS is the only thing that is "accomplished," unless
you count the illusions of grandeur as well.
What I'd _really_ like to hear is the status of the
total "move-over" to Linux that IBM announced (what
was it?) 3 freakin years ago? How is that coming, old
