Hey, have I lately talked about KLA? :) Did I mention that they are
spreading out 50.000 copies to schools in France? They are two and a
half part time developers. There are no timely security updates. And
look how well Microsoft supports its users with spyware infected
computers. The only software on a desktop system that needs updates is
the web browser.

No, no, no :o) I don't understand marketing that gives away lots of
its possible effect for being holier than the pope :^)

My guess is that the average hackers wants as many people to use his
software as possible. That is kind of applause for the artist :)
GNOME does not need to become a distribution by itself it simply can
plug to something existing.
