    I’m one of those rare end-users of Linux (by choice) so I’m not the best when it comes to understanding how to pop a kernel or summon daemons or whatever. But my impression of Linux is that it is adaptable. Rather than relying on proprietary systems locked into vendors, it seems to make sense to shift into a non-proprietary model going forward. But again, I’m not popping any kernels for daemons.
