As if I'd do that...

It's been quite useful as one of the crashes found a problem in the
2.6.0-test9-bk5 kernel (it would cause a kernel hang!). This has been
replicated and sent to the kernel bods.

The rest of the code is settling down now and only randomly explodes.

Really, the new code is very experimental, unstable and unfriendly. It
will also annoy the hell out of Debian users who insist on using gcc
2.95 as it will definately not compile on 2.95. Mwuhahahahaha

Not really. If I employed 80 odd engineers to create software which I
then flog at some vastly inflated price and a tall German and less tall
Scouser comes along and in their spare time create something which wipes
the floor with the commercial package, I would defend my IP to my last
euro. It doesn't matter if it stinks, that's the way it works.



One OS to fool them all
One browser to find them
One email client to bring them all
And through security holes, blind them...
