I think Walt Tautz was right. This file should not be posted, at least
here. First of all because it is a bit Off Topic on this mailing-list,
second because the article was alredy enought advertised by Alan Cox in a
recent posting on comp.os.linux.announce
In that article Alan writes the URL of the article and asks all the
Linuxers to be polite explaining the journalist where are his errors.

Being rude is a good way to encourage the man to picture us Linuxers as
fanatics and vulgar. This can be an hard hit to Linux and Linuxers.
