Okay, how about:

        The iterations of Linux distros have some major bugs in them.

It's more accurate, and much more general :)

However, as you point out, at least with Linux, not only can be do 
something about it, but we can expect a fix within a reasonable 
amount of time (well, unless that fix comes with a new Debian 
release, which averages once ever 2.5 years whether you want one or 
not :)

FAI *could* be distro-agnostic, it just needs a little work to make 
it work with RPM instead of dpkg and apt-get.  Though, since apt 
supposedly works with rpm now, it might not even take that much work?

        It may look like I'm just sitting here doing nothing,
   but I'm really actively waiting for all my problems to go away.

         If you're not having fun, you're not doing it right!
