Fascinating thread. While I would have preferred something like
"zieht nach", trying to keep the original co-notation of moving
towards some new promising grounds in no-man's or Windows' land,
the "Einfall" is not a complete catastrophe, albeit unfortunate.
Most certainly it was not meant any badly. Be nice and do not
"herfallen" over each other.
