Heh, this already has happened, without any change in mission statement!


For those of us who, years ago, warned about the dangers of "enterprise" 
workloads -- i.e. pets -- not being a good fit for OpenStack, and how 
the future was cattle workloads and cloud-native apps, this article 
kinda hit a nerve.

But then again, I keep hearing that these enterprises are paying all the 
salaries... so... who knows?
