    Hi John,

    While I’m not sure I agree with the “Big 4 vs. Little 4″ argument Gartner through out, I’m looking forward to participating in this discussion at OSCON. Personally, I think that there’s more cooperation brewing between these two groups than there is competition.

    Thanks so much for putting this BOF together.

    See you at OSCON,

    I actually never really listen to Gartner on their opinions. However, what Gartner is always great at is defining the language for others to debate. Therefore I have hijacked their B4 vs. L4 as a starting point. For example, I don’t see CA or Qlusters on my radar for the AV/BSM space. Anyway we can discuss this more in the BOF.

    BTW: I am flattered that you responded to my blog…
