I've always felt that we should've become upstream to everyone else
the moment we knew Oracle would eat Sun (20 April 2009), and never
understood why it didn't happen and now, ten years later, we're talking
about ZFS on fucking Linux becoming our upstream.  Something'd got very
wrong here and I'd like to know what and why.

Not at all, I'm also confused and curious.
