Re: When it comes to Linux, I can't be arsed.
I sure as hell hope that you ain't gonna plan on retiring any time soon. There's a whole cohort we'll have to outlive. (Mouse to the left of me, ashtray to the right, here I am stuck with my keyboard and you ;-)
Unfortunately, once you work for a company which has "adopted" Linux, you're stuck with something unbearable determined by the packager they've chosen, and then have to try and make the best of it. And the various Linux packagers - which is why I gave AIX a favourable mention - have never given us even the slightest indication of a roadmap, let alone target dates. It's just the same me-too-ism that MS practised and is still practising. I can assure you that life was easier in the 70s - and, BTW, rock music was much more interesting to listen to. At that time.
