i am all for getting the platform stable--not perfect, perhaps--but
predictable! thanks for the update, i agree with your statements.
i am also reminded of "The Cathedral and the Bazaar" where Eric Raymond
states "Linus's Law" as "Given enough eyeballs, all bugs are
shallow." I wish there were a way to apply this to hardware, without
the costs being astronomical.
