When I read that, the first question that was raised on me was:
- The best product for what, whom?
We can't simply put all possible Gentoo applications and users in one bag.
Is it really good to think on Gentoo as a product? Can we do like Apple
and treat our users like crap while still making them use our product?
Unless we provide locking, GNU/Linux users will always have a choice.
That choice can be to join the Gentoo community, or leave it.
