Mr. "Charon",

I am very sorry to say this, but I think, that you're trolling.

About "commercial vendors and FreeBSD", well, there's one small company
called "Apple", which does a thingie called "MacOS X". Are you (or is that
zdnet troll) one of people, who belive it is Linux based?

About "64-CPU boxes"... well, I'd consider buing 4 16-CPU ones and giving
them to 4 most active kernel hackers. I strongly belive results would come
faster, than you may expect.

That's all.

Perhaps that guy has some valid points, only he doesn't say about them
specifically; instead he keeps on bashing the whole project. That could also
be called "trolling". Feed him, if you want.

Take care,
