Yes, it is very sophisticated and Orwellian. The question then becomes:
will their efforts succeed due to market pressures, or are they in the
process of marginalizing themselves? Frankly, if there was a *BSD
distribution out there that was as approachable as, e.g., Ubuntu Linux,
then I believe that marginalization will occur. On the other hand, the
*BSD camp seems to have their own agenda which does NOT emphasize ease
So, in summary, the Linux kernel weasels are trying to force a specific
POV on all their users, the *BSD developers are largely oblivious to the
potential market (or have made the decision to not care), and the
OpenAFS developers are stuck trying to support a platform that seems to
be working hard to prevent them from doing so.
