I'm afraid I had harsh words for Rackspace this morning, when I 
discovered that they were tweeting things like "we've made the cloud 
open", only to read in the fine print "coming late 2010".

(I think this is an example of a company's PR people not talking with 
their engineers...)

They also made it sound like it was their idea.  The article I posted 
led me to believe it was NASA.

Ya know I loves ya, Troy...but someone at RS needs to stop pretending to 
support FOSS -- amid much fanfare, with asterisks and caveats -- and 
just do it.
