Thanks, I could have many jobs.
Had I not refused them, because I personally rather wanted to work for free
(on OpenSolaris), than for $$$ on LinUX.
Also: I live in 2 countries, 1500 km apart.
It is simply impossible to accept any normal day-jobs.
My desk it the web. It allows me to work from Ukraine and damn Berlin.

The best news is, that I got 2 interesting job offers after my "rant".
Even quite related I would say.

You: Let's just avoid each other, if not necessary.

Community: I also apologize to the community for the noise from time to
If you ever get that much caffeine and that little sleep for 3 weeks in a
row, maybe you understand me better.

But as said: OpenSXCE was intended as my well-intended honest gift to
Illumos, because at the time I still believed the marketing fluff, that the
community and Illumos were synonymous.
The less interest and respect you gave me, the more I got disappointed. How
was that with "rational thinking" again??!

Imagine for a second, you built a house as gift for your friend. And she
laughs about your "insanity".
How would you or any reasonable person react?

It would have been true insanity, had I not spoken out what became more and
more obvious.

So lets be just avoid contact, if not required.
Good luck to you and Illumos

best regards,
