I wasn't using clustering as an example of something affecting a
user's desktop. I am not going to try to explain it because that was
never my intention. And the only reason I didn't bring up SELinux or
any other specific innovation is because I don't want to argue about
the innovation. I wanted to make a more abstract point. I think you
now do understand what I was trying to convey so we can let it go now.
