  "Prime time" is simply defined: my former coworkers and I didn't give
it a second thought when we were deploying hundreds of console-less
zero-babysitting Sparc5 machines running NetBSD onto other peoples'
networks as satellite downlink controllers.  The hardware and the
software Just Works...no bullshit.  That's how *I* define "ready for
prime time".

  Much as I like Linux, if my paycheck depended on it, I'd never use it
in an application like that.
