It will be a tough time for those people pushing the legacy windows
environment in the face of linux and open source. At some point, no
doubt the astroturfers will find their funding removed, as a different
breed will be required. It's been shown that the billwg/Timsmith/ErikF
methods don't work - I think something more collaborative and 'open
source' as an approach is required, so I guess we'll start seeing some
new faces soon.
