Oh, you think so, do you?
"Several time", eh?

Over the years almost everything went though that.
It's what FOSS is about.

You weren't around for the pre- 0.99 days, then?
You weren't around when the ext FS was 'experimental'?
You weren't around when the whole IP networking stack was 'experimental' and
only a subset worked.
You weren't around when SAMBA was incomplete and experimental and only a subset
worked and was unstable at that.

Cue Mary Hopkins singing "Those were the days".
At the time, yes, it was frustrating and "we thought they'd never end", the
bugs, the patches, the arguments. But they did.
