WTF?

So many errors...

(thereby hovering in even more.) - "Hoovering" perhaps?

(if that sounds like to much hassle) - TOO much!

(told The Reg: "We heard from several people the are interested in using OpenStack, but don't have the sysadmins do build the KVM or networking) - WTF? Plus no closing quotes.

(and if you are developer working on an application) - "if you are A developer"?

(and to that they'd need the hardware) - to DO that they'd need the hardware

(Once your finished, your compute resources return to the pool ) - Once YOU'RE finished!

(With the "deploy" portion of the development cycle) - Should be apostrophes, not quotes as you are stating a name, not quoting.
