Gotta Link That

The post ends with
    In the words of John Galt, (no, not those words) "Get the hell out of my way."
My cat speaks.

But, no, seriously, if you haven't already, check out Trey Givens. The man cracks me up (and writes IS the prerequisite of the other, of course).

The above-mentioned post smacks Wired magazine right out of his subscription list. Buh-bye.

Wired sucks these days - in retrospect, it always has. But Trey's rant about open source software is remarkably ill-informed.

WOO! Thanks for the hook up!

As for your commentor, I repsonded to that position on my own website but I would summarize with just this: I didn't write about open source software. I wrote about the viability of open source software to business and the relationship of the open source community to the antitrust suit against Microsoft.

Say, Heather, can we also add as one of our prereqs the ability to read carefully?

I suspect if you add "the viability of" between "about" and "open source software" to Pixy's comment, you affect neither the meaning nor validity. Ad hominem attacks on her ability to read carefully are not warranted.

I was ad hominuminuming YOU, Hansy! ;o)

How come I can't add comments to your site?

Because I'm using a lousy client-side blogging tool, until I get around to installing a real one.
