This is one of my problems with an OS like Linux.  It may be the greatest
thing in the world but my responsibility to the shareholders keeps me from
making it a main stream solution.  We can play with it but we won't put
business critical applications totally on it.  I know that some other large
companies have opted to go this route but I also see those same companies on
the front page of ComputerWorld changing to another technology 12-18 months
later, usually with a new CIO.

        Lurton,

        I read recently some consideration of turning over control to a
        "standards"  committee.  The idea wasn't received well.
