MR, can you please clarify me what "to bottom post" means, as I don't want
to break any etiquette. And also what FOSS means.

As for your reply... yes, to a great extent you are right. But what many in
the linux world don't like or wish to acknowledge, is that another reason
might be the countless disjointed distros... and nobody to explain to them
that they can ignore the userland and focus on the kernel only, as their
aplication will after all be just another userland running on it... if I'm
understanding this whole thing right, that is...

Tda ;)
