Plonk.  I was here before you were.

Read the old mailing list archives.  :)

Newcomers might not understand you was well as everyone here does.

We'd really hate to end up like QMail and have an essentially good product
but a bad rep because everyone thinks one of the authors is 'an asshole'.

As I said; Linux will reap what they sow.

As long as we are not forced to change important things in order to
'support' Linux we're ok.

The Linux users/developers associated with this project seem more than
willing to do the work of making PostgreSQL work with Linux.

The Linux community seems more than willing to play upgrade of the week in
order to maintain a stable operating platform.

If this is the system that work for them then more power to them.

You and I and others who enjoy sleeping at night and not having to worry
about mucking about with glibc (and other horrors) can use Solaris or
FreeBSD or BSDI or whatever.

Its nearly free but the NDA is a complete bitch.
