Re: Cloudera Vs Hortonworks Vs MapR

I agree with your arguments. Really well put. Only things I would add is -
we do not want sales/marketing folks getting involved in these kinds of
threads and pollute it with sales pitches, unsubstantiated claims, and make
it a forum for marketing pitch. This can also have community repercussions
as you have rightly pointed out.

Wearing my own hadoop PMC hat, we do put Apache release regularly. Bigtop
also provides excellent stack packaging as well. In this forum my wish is
to see discussions around that than vendor related. There are already many
outside forums for this.
