Thank you for posting that link. Even though I am subscribed to
comp.os.linux.advocacy I hadn't noticed your post until you mentioned it.

To be fair, let us not forget to acknowledge the 'motor' which is S5 (GPL):


I mention it in _many_ different places throughout my site including the
metadata. I also used to embed links in the presentations themselves, but
the viewers/audience saw it as propaganda, which they did not appreciate.

My site's share of Firefox roughly equates that of IE. Moreover, if we never
'tell' IE users that their browser is buggy, will they ever upgrade? It
bothers me that bodies like FEMA spit at my direction while inferior
browsers never get punished because they are bundled to a commercial O/S,
which naturally (unjustifiable) sums up to a majority.
