I concur. it's not cool!

We don't think it's a good idea to install linuxPPC just now; but the
underlying OS should be transparent to all LADs/LAUs anyway!

right, gnu/Linux audio - not gnu/Linux servers. - FWIW: we use GNU
software on this server. - but feel free to take this OT issue to the
consortium mailing list. I'm not going to waste time for matters we can
not change easily, now!

yes, it's kind of an ironic joke.

IIRC BSD gets more out of your _web server_ hardware *and* it features
JAILs, chroot-envs and security that gnu/Linux does not [yet]. - If
there is going to be a shell login server for LADs to upload web-content
etc. (alike shell.sf.net):  it'd  prefer a LINUX-compat freeBSD!

Nevertheless once we get them, at least our mail, log and file server(s)
are going to be pure gnu/Linux!
