Re: Linux is not about choice [was Re: Fedora too cutting edge?]

If I could only have one thing this year, it would be to eliminate that
meme from the collective consciousness.  It is a disease.  It strangles
the mind and ensures you can never change anything ever because someone
somewhere has OCD'd their environment exactly how they like it and how
dare you change it on them you're so mean and next time I have friends
over for Buffy night you're not invited mom he's sitting on my side
again.
Damn you where's my FreeBSD kernel package for Fedora?

I guess that you are joking, but I think that a FreeBSD kernel package
is perfectly right for fedora. It should not go in a stable release
until it is stable, and could be less well integrated than the linux
kernel but it would definitively be something interesting.


Can we have OpenSolaris (with zfs) too? I was going to point out that Linux wasn't about choice but about providing a free and compatible alternative to Unix. But this would complete the circle...
