I've just the never gotten the "new disto twice a week and a recompile of
the kernel every Sunday night" crowd. Which is fine if you're a developer,
but if it's just the machine you browse the net with you might be better off
just settling down with a good book.

Oh believe me I've tried to get VMS systems in here. It's just a pity that
outside of the US Department Of Defence, Stock Exchanges, Intel, Terry
Shannon (Of Shannon Knows DEC, -correction- Shannon Knows
Compaq, -correction- Shannon Knows HPC) and a handful of others, no one
gives a damn about VMS.
Again it shows that better technology doesn't always win, and it stands even
less of a chance if it's mismanaged by no less than three owners.
