No, he's quototic.
Here's the first two comments, one like yours and one from the original
So Vista sucks more because it implemented a standard properly.
Oh, the hilarity.
I agree that the fault lies largely with the IETF and not Microsoft. But
rule 9 isn't actually mandatory; the RFC allows you to use a different
selection mechanism instead, and they should have done.
By the way, nice way to flag an article of Roy's, which I decided to skip,
for further reading. Some of the comments are interesting.
You better watch it, Erik, or that egregious fsckhole, Hadron, will accuse
you of being a shill for "your master", Roy!
i dont even know if it makes sense at all :) This is an experimental patch
for an experimental kernel :))
