    Currently, the main (management) argument against Unix is:
    "You're in a maze of twisty Unices, all incompatible."

    With ia64 and UDI the Unix vendors (seem to) want to change
    that to:
    "You're in a maze of twisty Unices, all interchangeable."

    Once we reach that last situation, Unix _will_ once again
    have a major non-techical selling point; _the_ selling point
    that is now used against Unix by non-technical folks in
    management and sales... All in all, it will save a lot of
    sysadmins ;)
