Or that second moment... "I told you so"

The jurors patiently sat through your legal mudslinging. They put their lives on-hold so you could whine on about 37 lines of code. They took their time to try to return the best decision they could. Now you dare to call them "unreasonable" because they didn't agree with you. A trick tried my SCO, if my memory services.
What little credibility you had left in this case is gone. It is you who are being unreasonable. And disrespectful to the men and women of the jury that will never get those two weeks of their lives back.
Pretty much everyone in IT except Oracle.
I am sure if someone offered to backport (or pay someone to backport it) the fix to traditional, it would still be accepted, though. Same goes for the development of any missing functionality in xl. My experience of the Xen custodians is that if someone puts forward something with merit and is prepared to write it, then they will include it.
I somewhat disagree, but figured a downvote would be a bit strong. I use STARTTLS on my mail server and its excellent for convenience. I don't expect emails going out to be encrypted, although they might be. It does mean that emails I send that stay on the server are encrypted though (in transit), i.e. to other family members. I asked on my local LUG list how many people had non-tech family or friends using PGP etal. None, Not scientific, but an okay representation, I think.
Been gradually moving everything off 123-reg after a cock-up at their end meant I was told I had to pay twice to secure my domain and even though the knew I had already paid and they would refund the first payment some days after. I did get the refund and they gave me 2 years extra free on the domain, but I lost several hours of my time trying to deal with it. Still got a few domains with them, alas. I wish I'd had warning.
I think the actors were for filming segments of footage for use during the tour, not presenting the tours themselves.
I did the old tour with two 9-yearolds and I can say they got very bored unfortunately. Definitely not suitable for the younger consumer. I enjoyed it but I did feel it was a little slow in places. There was an element of is/is not colossus viewable today which I found a bit confusing. In the end we saw it.
Changes definitely welcome, but being sensible about it is also welcome.

Personally, I think the reason PC sales have flat-lined is because the requirements of your average home user hasn't changed in years. Surfing, social networking, youtubing, etc... all fine on a 4+ year Laptop. If you are not too bothered about HD content, you can go back even further. The one I use is 2 years old and I have never had it using more than 50% CPU. (Granted it is using a quadcore i7)
Using Ubuntu Desktop, by the way.
I agree with the first commentator (upvoted). You shouldn't plan to have more than one RC, although you can have as many as you like.
According to wikipedia... "A release candidate (RC) is a beta version with potential to be a final product". If you are planning to have three of them, then numbers 1 & 2 can't be a potentially final product". I am not saying Wikipedia is gospel, but it's my understanding of the term and I would suggest the understanding of the first commentator. If nothing else, the name - "Release Candidate" - should give the game away.
"When we get new customers and they are on RHEL or whatever, they have to install Windows."
I am surprised you get new customers that are on RHEL, in that case.
Culture can only change from within in my opinion, so keep at it and good luck!
... only really applies when the people in situ know what they are doing but they are just doing it too slowly. Now, if you have a bunch of fuckwits in-situ (no idea if that is the case) , then getting non-fuckwit people in can only help. Of course, if it has just been designed badly, then neither fuckwits nor non-fuckwits will be able to fix it.
