Dear John,

did you take a moment to think about how the quote aptly describes the
Linux softare philosophy and its application. If you had, it would be
very clear to you that blessings of freedom in linux is the diversity in
software and ideas, while the fatigue of supporting it would be the
endless task of integrating the various softwares and ideas, keeping up
with new versions/updates without ever breaking the system.

That would probably the most direct meaning that you should have been
able to deduct from the quote as it applies to the linux world. Of
course, it runs much deeper than that. But, I can't expect you to any
deeper because for you the quote is just obscure and erudite.

I will not make an assumption that you are either pretentious or
unintelligent. Hopefully, you were just too lazy to give it a thought.
Now you know the quote is neither obscure nor erudite, but only fitting.
I hope you agree.
