this came by the crossgcc mailing list.
"matrix of pain" seems quite apropos. aren't all of NetBSD's platforms
cross-buildable, excepting 32-to-64 and vice-versa?

Subject: Quote of the day: "matrix of pain"
http://news.zdnet.com/2100-9590_22-5657239.html is an
interview with Ken Klein, CEO of Wind River, about their switch to Linux.
Here's my favorite bit:
-- snip --
ZDNet: What are the complexities of Linux in the embedded market?
Klein: It's very fragmented. In servers, one processor architecture matters.
In the embedded market, there are about 60 that matter.
That complexity is what I call the matrix of pain.

And I thought the matrix at http://kegel.com/crosstool/current/buildlogs/
was painful enough, with its pitiful 26 architectures :-)
