Now not to start a flame war or a fight but is this not why the open
source community is normally playing catch up? Its time to stop ignoring
standards and being to let standards pave the way. Administrators from
what I understand like buzz words before adapting technology. In fact
that is one reason Microsoft easily gets a foot hold its not the price
for sure. Its more the buzz words and marketing they do with those buzz
words. Standard is really nothing more then a buzz word and it lets
people know that it will work with other applications. 

But anyways. I dont think it should be ignored persay.
