That we happen to run it as our desktop marks us hardly as average guys.
Think you have a wrong impression of the cummunity there.
They are all perverts running ion/*box/xfce4/9wm etc. if they run that
stupid GUI stuff at all (thx to Sascha's syscons enhancements).
I do strongly disagree here, although DF has the _target_ to be a Secure 
SSI clusterable OS, this is not what it's now _already_ is, a logical 
continuation of FreeBSD-4 look and feel.

When DF is SSI clusterable, then of course it is going to be on the 
average company desktop, there is no way I am continuing to throw away 
all this CPU power & other resources when I _have_ an option to use it 
even if it means that some apps must be rewritten, this is too important 
to not use it.
