Alan, believe me if I tell you I greatly appreciate your work, as well as all the devs behind OSS. I've been an OSS user for decades now, and I already used FreeRadius several years ago in another project. Recently, I've taken up another project, and I didn't hesitate one single second when choosing FR for a Radius implementation.

The fact that I'm tackling with Microsft Windows clients is neither my fault nor my requirement. I'm not responsible for choosing the clients. If I were, I'd go for totaly different systems. Just so you know, I've always confronted people who wanted to implement say, a Microsoft Radius server implementation, so that they would finally accept using FreeRadius. And that's just one example...

Anyway, I'm used to your comments so I won't take it personally :-). This goes way back. I've always known you like this. A tad obnoxious, but a formidable developer, a great help on the ML, and absolutely never ever a liar. 

I hope you don't mind if I stick around for a few more decades (or as much as I can last).
