There isn't even a remote mention of secret contract signing meetings
anywhere in this article. Not one.

Would that be a reference to "Woody", the Debian distro?

Not "A Woody" that you can get just from thinking about it...

Everyone I know is now converted to safe, secure, upto 50X faster,
GNU/Linux! The kids love http://pclinuxos.com and http://www.mepis.org
that are some of the 310 FREE distros at http://livecdlist.com which
are immune to the multiple convicted Microsoft's "114,000 Microsoft
Virus Definitions".

Also, Linux users are not forced to be party to the "multiple convicted
multiple felon, liar, thief, pirate, Microsoft Trusted Partner"
PROTECTION RACKET! Microsoft has so many things in common with the
Mafia, that it is a wonder they haven't been charged under the RICO
Statutes!

Anyone else would have been, by now...

You accusing Roy S of lying is laughable. You have accused me of
plagiarism and have 'proof'. Yet you do not post any proof even when
I've bent over backwards to enable you to do so.

You are a liar qualig as you clearly have no proof. Put up or
apologise [spelt correctly] arsehole.

Security is one of those funny things. You can talk about being "more"
secure, but there's no such thing. A vulnerability is a vulnerability, and
even one makes you just as insecure as anyone else. Security is a binary
condition, either you are or you aren't. - Funkenbusch 1 Oct 2006

LieSureSuits Larry won't put up. He thought he'd get away with
badgering you. It isn't working and he's stuck now. He won't try to
save face. He'll just have another round and be satisfied that his
fellow troll idiots going along with his fraud.

I know *I'd* be really happy that the likes of Timmy and Hadone Quirk
were backing me, but not a single person with any credibility.

If you'd have made your code open source, you wouldn't have this
problem. Yet another illustration of the advantage of open source.
