That's quite interesting about 'trolls' Paul.
If by troll you mean, someone who would arbitrarily 'decide' to overlook their
'own' transgressions to propiatery code "ie , when I use propiatery code.. I do
it in a justified way... it's a special case and it's different to when 'you'
use propiatery code", then yes, I think that makes you one, I honestly do. I'm
not trying to provoke you in anyway when I say that, but, it seems to me you
are holding others to a higher standard then you hold yourself.
"Yes my video card bios has propiatery code but..."
"Yes the Yast installer was closed source but..."
"Yes the BIOS on my motherboard is closed source but.."
"Yes Google is closed source and I use Google but..."
How many special cases do you need to make to _still_ be right and in how many
ways have _you_ gone to try to circumvent use of closed source technology and
standards in these _and_ other cases, which gives you a divinely derived right
to point the finger at anybody _else_ on the list based on what you already
admit is nothing more then ignominious suspicion?
