I have to agree with Leam.  I would also like to say , for the 
initiated, the article should have been enough to show the lack of 
knowledge the  author possessed on the topic.  It was full of incorrect 
statements.  The largest and most obvious one to catch for anyone with a 
sane mind was the statement about the Fedora name.  If you are posting 
to this list and couldn't figure that one out, I would like to be the 
first to ask you to never post here again because you didn't possess 
enough brain cells to read about Fedora before wasting your breath and 
others time.  All I can say is: Who in the world lets people that 
ignorant write articles on their website?  I can now only imagine how 
I'll never read anything on newsforge again.  That was a truly pathetic 
waste of time.  Enough said.
