Not me, I'm quite used to working in heterogeneous environments.
But here we have a historic opportunity to do something better,
to significantly the manageability and reliability of UNIX, and
what happens? Everyone has ten different ideas at about the same
time, and they all go off and implement without trying to build
the critical mass necessary to make it a cross-platform standard.
Like I said, typical UNIX behavior, although I had hoped we left
most of that behind in the '90s.

I appreciate the concept of competition in the marketplace of
ideas. I also appreciate improved manageability across a variety
of platforms.
