L4 and EROS

I have been wondering why "Eros" has invaded this list.
This user's pov: L4 is a solid product which works well. I want to
experiment with OS building and L4 has a robust base structure, as well
as a friendly community and all the tools I need to stick my own silly
things on top of it. I support L4. [ I'd support Eros if it had been
built to the same level, never mind whatever "angels on pinhead"
theoretical issues might occasionally surface. However, from my
assessment of the website and some googled papers, Eros is still (shall
we say) alpha.]
I'm concerned that this side debate might end up destabilising the L4
Team's motivation. [ Actually, I think I meant to include the word
"angry" somwhere in there but that would have been out of keeping ]
I'm sure that one day there will be viable alternative u-kernels but for
the next year or so I can't see anything toppling L4. Please keep at it,
Team, and don't allow yourselves to get tr*lled into distractions.
And for the moment Happy New Year L4Hackers and please persevere. You
are Doing The Right Thing.
