Rahul,

That rant was directed at Kevin. I greatly appreciate the work that you,
and the others at Fedora do every day. Truly I do.

I just bothers me when the zealots and purists can not see that what
'feeds' takes precedent over ideals. there are many of us.

It is 'really cool' the be a 'Linux person', a zealot, until it does not
put the 'bread' on the table.

Rant. Rave. Stomp your feet and scream all that you want to. When it
come to my kids? Hungry for a 'cause' loses to reality every time.

I use what works to provide the bread.
