It's not Red Hat's doing - they're just surfing the top of the wave
and trying to make it look as if they're actually steering it. Poppycock.
They're not just surfing. They're making a big investment of their own.
You have a choice. As I have said so many times now that it must be
becoming a litany, if you want to do FreeBSD a whole bunch of good for
very little comparative cost, go write a book. Or a magazine article.
Or even a 10 page self-help guide (which frequently grow into books
anyway). You don't need anyone's help or buy-in or official blessing
to do any of that....
Sorry, but I've been there and done that. I've written plenty of magazine
articles and am working on a book, but neither will do anything significant
to stop the accelerating trend. Marketing and investment will.
Now, who's gonna do it? If Walnut Creek won't, must we have a schism? I'd
sure rather not.
