    In any case, Larry's suggestion would fracture Linux. Also, Solaris might
    be a fine piece of work, but what is commonly called Linux (i.e.,
    distributions) is more flexible, easier to use, and friendly
    overall. Besides, the kernel handles an insane selection of hardware, and
    is able to interoperate with allmost everything else there is. No mean
    feat, that one.
