I was intentionally using hyperbole and oversimplification (or are those
mutually exclusive) in several points in my rant.

My point on the "ignore descriptions over 2 years old" was pertaining to
over-two-year-old reviews, analysis, and comparison of Linux distros to
other OSes. NOT documentation of key system components. Those are quite
different things, methinks.
