Fair enough for me. Save that I'm _very_ leary of zealotry
of any stripe. I try hard to not label corporations or
other groups of people as "bad" or "evil empire" or what
have you. Not my job, nor am I well enough informed or
smart enough to do the job. I do seem to be a minority
I prefer open source software because I trained as a
physical scientist. Basically, in my training and by my
values, secret data is normally a bad thing. Secrets
encourage liars, and honest mistakes, to persist and make
life all that much harder and more confusing.
Sorry for the soapbox act. It was irritation at what I saw

in the first place, and now I've gone and done it myself.
And before somebody points it out, that pretty much makes
me a hypacrit(sp?).
