There are people employed as developers that actually choke on a CLI?  Wow. Really scraping the bottom of the barrel for talent if that is accurate.

Re: Is offering PaaS essential to offering IaaS?
@Charlie: It make sense in this case, but can we safely assume it to be a norm across the board? In other words, can there be no company which can only offer a platform to only run the apps while the platform for managing the development on these can be offered by some other company with specializes in this particular task?

Is offering PaaS essential to offering IaaS?
HP's bid to buy ActiveState's Stackato is a sign of how hard it will be compete in infrastructure as a service if you don't also have a platform as a service offering. Enterprises not only want a platform on which to run applications but also a platform on which to develop them.
