Ok. So what needs improvement and where to start? Not being critical, I'm interested in this. Personally though, I think the business model here is a failure and seriously flawed. And yes, I did study business at Monash (and butted heads constantly; IF you don't look out for the health and well being of a community, environment, employees, whatever- the extreme social responsibility- then the clients and potential clients die, ergo no customers therefore no money to be made. Thats looking after your bottomline: Duh!) and saw this continually. Marketing the same; appealing to all markets is extremely lucrative, and with the technology literally at our fingertips can be very easy to do. So why not just pull the finger out and do it instead of saying its too hard, too much trouble, etc. Old people at the wheel stuck on old ways and refusing to budge (no offense intended to those on the list- I have a lot of respect for those in technology; strangely the inverse is true- they actually know what they're doing and do it properly the first time) in management. Sorry for the rant, but that's just my 2c. _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
