Now now, no need to get so testy. But it is nice to see someone provide me
with a good reason about why email support from random and unknown people
isn't so tasty all the time :-) I'll have to remember that though: be
careful when sending email to linux-kernel as some people may just tell
you to "fuck off".

Thing is, I use Solaris as well as Linux as well as *BSD as well as SunOS.

I'm just not so awed with Linux to think it's the best thing since sliced
bread as a lot of other people here seem to be. To me, it's just another
operating system which has bugs and more useless features (to me) every day.
