Yeah, my bad - I took his reply as "I don't like what you're saying, so I'm
going to pretend that I don't understand any of commonly understood terms you
used, and I'm going to demand that you define everything"

I admit, "go back to sleep" was uncalled for.

The basic issue is whether the success of linux is assured, or whether there
is yet work to be done. I think there is work to be done, and it can certainly
be accomplished with the available talent of the linux community, but there is
a certain wealthy corporation with access to lawmakers and key influencers,
who consider it fairly important to stop linux. To ignore this fact will not
make the job easier, to put it mildly.

I'll probably just send Randall the definitions of those commonly used terms
that he wanted via PM to avoid inflicting any more of the thread on this list.
