OK I overstated things. It is entirely possible
that James Cameron knows nothing about linux.
I guess that I have a feeling that he might have some idea
about different OSes as he seems interested in technology in
general and doesn't take a backseat when it comes to coordinating
special effects. ( Yes I know this for a fact ). He is also a physics
graduate so it wouldn't be crazy to assume that he might have some
interest in computer technology. I don't know him personally so
this is all supposition. In future I'll run everything that I post
to this list past my lawyer before I hit the send button.
I'm sorry guys, I'll never ever exaggerate, ever again.
