    I resent that. If your efforts in working on popular kernel topics
    met rapid reward then I'm happy for you. The fact that others tackle
    unpopular topics and persist despite constant personal attacks should
    nevertheless be recognized for what it is.

    You're entirely correct. I never claimed it to be perfect, that's why I
    had approached others early on to try to bridge things together and
    that's why I used to post ltt patches to the lkml.

    If that's how it was read, then it wasn't written right. ltt was never
    really a profit center for me, embedded Linux training was -- you
    wouldn't believe how much more profitable training is than pure
    consulting. But my own business is just beside the point. My point
    was that the high barrier to entry for tracing fragmented efforts
    around it. As for corporate decisions which culminated from such
    resistance, they probably were the sanest decision to take at the
    time. Heck if I was a manager at any of those companies I would have
    likely taken the same decision. It was, and still is, though,
    counterproductive. Fully justifiable, but counterproductive.
