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"[1] as "Given enough eyeballs, all bugs are 
shallow."  I wish there were a way to apply this to hardware, without 
the costs being astronomical.

kind regards,
