Yeah, we have some very strong areas that others don't compete with.
Xen is one of them, SELinux is another.  Overall security is another -
we've done a huge amount of work in that area (see Mark Cox's blog for
specific statistics.)

And we're starting to get ahead in other areas as well.  The core +
extras merge is really going to start to help us get ahead of the curve
again instead of always being on the defensive.  Things really _are_
looking up and I'm really excited about our future.
