But Roy Schestowitz is surely a pen name? No man can hurt his own future

paid for this job I wonder. It must be nice and easy money for him.

Where is he getting his information from? Does Novell give it too him? I
am surprised - maybe he takes it from the one post from the other
sensible poster which has hundreds of article about Linux advocacy.
