[Snort-users] SNORT and Linux 8.0

Please, this is clearly some style of "management consultant" or
"efficiency expert" not a technology consultant so give him a break.
There are a lot of consultants that are not technology consultants out
there doing "Business Process Re-Design" or other cruft.  They want to
know if "version X" of product "Y" works on platform "Z" so they can add
a decision layer to the technologists recommondations.  We've all seen
this sort of thing before from management.  And in a Windows world,
software versioning and operating system revision / patch levels are
very important for application compatibility, so for someone unfamiliar
with Open Source this is a very logical question.  The answer is:
 
Question:  Does anyone know what version of Snort will run on Linux 8.0?
Answer:  YES
 
Although the answer probably won't help much until a better question
emerges.
 
If this person IS a technology consultant however, then this is truly
one of the most chilling questions I've ever seen.... at once showing a
fundamental and complete lack of understanding of UNIX, Linux, SNORT,
open source software in general, compiling software in specific, and
intrusion detection....   
 
It is like a Windows home user deciding that they were a security expert
one day after learning how the MS Patch Updater tool works level of
scary, and then you are justified in trying to protect the reputation of
those of us who ARE professionals by making a stink on this list.

Why?  Stealing is wrong.  Selling people something you don't have is
stealing.  This applies even it's you're selling what you know.
Consultants like this give the rest of us a bad name.
