From the article:

Mulehockey! That smacks of merely wishing to copy Solaris. If the FreeDesktop devs wish to merge /usr then do so on technical merits, NOT because they want Linux to be "just like Solaris".
Copying someone else sounds like what that OS company from Redmond has done for the past 28 years. I thought Linux was better than that.
