Couldn't agree more.

Our experience parallels that in the report. We started out with
Erlang and later, after digging in docs and looking at Eddie and other
source from those in the know, found out how much more effective one
can be starting with OTP.

Probably the best reason yet to upgrade the Red Book. :-)


P.S.: I suspect at my site we are in the same condition re mnesia that
we were with OTP a year ago - woefully underutilized.
