I was. In my incredibly subtle manner I was pointing out that one
reason that Linux doesn't have problems with old commerical packages
is that it doesn't any (or, not many at least). It will eventually,
and in a few years people will be complaining about not being able to
use the super-duper new database-driven filesystem with Oracle 8 and
so you should be using FreeBSD instead.
