Correct, besides which Ben seems to feel people are disagreeing on the 
desirability of using open source software when in fact they are mostly 
disagreeing about the *practicality* in this particular instance.

Compellingly absent from most critics' output is a statement to the 
effect that they will volunteer their time to encourage the adoption of 
Roundup, which is excluded only by the absence of a support infrastructure.

Time to shit or get off the pot, I'd say.
