Wait a minute, here... just wait a minute, are we talking about the same
project here?

Debian took _forever_ to move to glibc 2.1.3, i seriously hope there not
hoping on using an developers release (or snapshot) of glibc in
there unstable branch, i wonder how they managed to convince everyone on
that ;)

RH stopped working with the community once they hit the IPO, it's been
down hill (actually even before) since then.

As for M$ and Corel... i'm sorry Cowpland left Corel, no matter what
someone will say about it, he did bring Ottawa (really, if you know the
history behind it) to where it is now,  M$ buying into the company
now, this doesn't surpise me, too bad Inprise and Corel didn't
merged, they could have had some serious potentional.

Corel was fucked wayyyy before they got involved with Linux, some would
say getting involved with Linux actually has saved the company so far,

Mmm..Netwinders, Wordperfect, Corel Linux, etc

Nah, thx the gods we have the source code, as that matters more, LFS would
not exists if we didn't have the source... =)

Dunno... Bryan pointed out a Gratefull Dead song not too long ago, really
described how the Distro's are going today, just a shame.
