By this point, BitKeeper users will continue to be BitKeeper users and
BitKeeper haters will continue to be BitKeeper haters. No one's mind is
changing about BK these days -- either they like it or they don't. The
debate has reached the level of emacs vs. vi, pro/anti-abortion, gun
control, <insert favorite political issue here>.

No one's mind is being changed, there's just a lot of energy wasted on
pointless ranting.

Thus, you should have seen even before hitting 'Send' that your message
was nothing but a lot of hot air, slashdot fodder and a troll. Would it
not be logically more productive to direct FSF efforts instead towards
funding Arch or SubVersion development?
