All sorts of organisations want you to download white papers: vendors with amazing storage, virtualisation and security solutions. This would be great if these papers contained something of value, but universally they do not. Instead they are behind a registration-wall (or pay-wall), and identified completely by a catchy title with nothing more, and when you do get one, it contains no useful information whatsoever, having been written by marketing droids.
If you find that you are looking at a white paper when trying to fix an implementation problem, you know that you are not going to make progress.
Since this concept is so popular, I made one of my own.
