"Now we get to this latest consolidation of Linux power. VA Linux buys Andover.net. I'm sorry guys, but this is just - too - much. This weakens the Linux community and is just too much to swallow."
"Why is this latest grab so much different than the others mentioned and how has it weakened the Linux Community? It is different because it has consolidated several large separate places for the community to gather into one huge place. That in and of itself probably is not bad, but it might be a huge vulnerability should things go badly for VA. So how about the "weakened the Linux Community" part?"
