Sorry for a "me to" type message here but...
I have to say I was so tempted put a message on this tread to the same
effect. The article was complete rubbish. I just got iritated reading it - i
couldn't even finish reading it. I hate that this site got this many hits
from people on this list - they'll think it was a great article.
I always like that MSN has a rating at the end of the articles - what a good
idea. This would be a good idea for articles/reviews on linux.ie.

ditto...I'd expect "World News" to have better articles. Like there is
uninformed and then there is Doodle talking about cricket! The guy just
doesn't appear to know what he's on about!!
