Jason, it is not acceptable to point to RH and Sun people over here,
when it was you the one who brought the whole "Sun should realize that
OpenSolaris is a dead end" statement to a list where none can do
anything to make the relevant people at Sun realize such thing even if
it was true.

If you want to see desktop devel and #gnome-hackers going back to the
good old times where they were useful communication channels, start by
behaving yourself and consider the usefulness and how provocative your
messages can be before clicking 'Send'.

Un saludo,
