Caldera bought SCO, then IBM screwed Caldera. One of the _greatest_
things for Linux was Caldera's purchase of SCO. Then IBM, just 20 days
after the purchase, totally hosed it!

The Linux community got screwed by IBM, and 90+% sit there and thank
IBM. Nuts! (or what General MacAfflife actually told the Germans ;-).

Stop! You've admitted you don't know what you're talking about.
Let it _go_!

I'm sorry, but I _am_ "condescending" to people who proliferate FUD when
they don't know what they are talking about. Especially when they are
in the 90+% ignorant majority and just go along with the mindless herd.

nations can burn the American flag -- Americans get upset
because citizens in those same nations can't burn their own
