Hmm, it's very, very rare that I find myself disagreeing with Paul Wise, but I think that the cross-platformness of a package / library / toolset might actually be relevant if one looks at Debian not merely as an OS, and not even as a wonderful software repository to go with that OS, but also as a just as wonderful software repository for pieces that one may pick, choose and use in all sorts of projects - including some projects that might (for a multitude of various reasons) have to be deployed on other OS's. Sometimes during the initial architectural and technical design of a project it might be useful to know what tools are available and which of them might also be available in a broader target base. Of course, ICBW - as I often am :) G'luck, Peter -- Peter Pentchev firstname.lastname@example.org roam@FreeBSD.org email@example.com PGP key: http://people.FreeBSD.org/~roam/roam.key.asc Key fingerprint FDBA FD79 C26F 3C51 C95E DF9E ED18 B68D 1619 4553 What would this sentence be like if it weren't self-referential?
