That sounds sad. Maybe I got overexcited ;-/

(I guess I get excited reading prose that shows attention
to the distinction between abstractions and their representations.
Sort of like reading quotes from Plato, and thinking, "Hey, wow,
I've had some of those thoughts." :)

I hope they are not just preparing themselves for spinning off
and becoming rich as a monopolist takeover target ;-/

Or that they're looking forward to being raided by offers
of signing bonuses and a playground with expensive toys,
just to keep their competition out of the market.

Or that they'll be disrupted by metoo accusations.

So what makes you hopeful about guix? :)
