"Okay Rob, you can have one FreeBSD box, on your desktop..."

Now it's 12... 12 in production and spreading. The people who make the
decisions DON'T have a clue, they never experience the trenches as it
were, and doubtful that they ever will.

The problem is that Tech is a bowl of jello. Look at the color. Look at
the jiggle... These guys who sign the bottom line and tell us, the
workers, what to do have the say on what we get to use or not to use.
(Unless you work in some far of neverland. If so, are they hiring?)

And where do they get their info?

Do there own thing? It would be interesting how you might quantify that?
And I am not even encouraging "competing" with the other companies, but at
least give a chance to those who have to.

This would be the core team I refer to.
