Re: "Prescriptive" open source stacks
Exactly. It makes sense. If you look at for example, the issues that OpenStack is going through right now trying to simplify the stack itself and included services and streamline modules so that it becomes more user friendly, and you'll see why this is so crucial, despite it looking like it goes against the Open Source philosophy of having more open selection from a large community of application developers. We need standardization to help drive better and more indepth adoption, so this is a great step towards helping create that.
