I seem to remember a "don't post this email on the list here's what's
up" message
from you I that I honored your instructions and did not post, nor will
I, but I recall
some reasonable suggestions from it. :-)

I've been working on LAN scalability for almost 20 years, and NetWare
LAN performance vs. Linux (or TUX) speaks for itself. I would agree
that someone
coming from a Unix background would have radically different views than
someone
coming from the group who created the Networking industry that made
"LAN" a household
word to the world at large.

It's the differences of all those who work on Linux that make it such a
potent
mix of skills and views. I think this is a very good thing, and I take
your comment
as a compliment.
