- Microsoft apologist with no peer
- Spreads FUD about Linux, OSS & GPL (did the same when OS/2 was a threat to Microsoft)
- Habitual liar
- When caught lying runs away
- Will resort to unethical means to denigrate Linux advocates - always fails
- Funkenbusch is utterly devoid of ethical values
- Known to cross post to other Linux newsgroups in a futile attempt at causing more disruption
- Obsessed with Roy Schestowitz
- Racist (see below regarding 419 scams)
- Where does NTFS store its journal?
- How did the Morris worm spread by email?
- What about using MS TT fonts on Linux, why have they to be *only*
used in Windows?
- Can he provide evidence for plenty of examples of competing ISO
- What about the "dozens of root exploits per month in linux" he
claimed, & he was then found to be making it all up?
- What was the master plan Erik had when he spammed COLA with incipient replies to Roy Schestowitz's [News] posts?
Security is one of those funny things. You can talk about being "more" secure, but there's no such thing. A vulnerability is a vulnerability, and even one makes you just as insecure as anyone else. Security is a binary condition, either you are or you aren't.
I still stand by my argument that the morris worm spread through email because it spread through sendmail, and email program.
Much like Linux vendors have a conflict of interest in that they subsist entirely on support contracts, and have no financial incentive to make problem free software.
I don't consider anything handed down from above as "open source", whether or not it's released using an open source license.
1) Millions of NIGERIAN children with free PC's. There's a reason most of the 419 scams come out of nigeria, and now having millions of people with computers to run such scams will only make things worse.
[here's a bit of inanity regarding OpenOffice downloads]
Whether or not that's true, it could mean 1/2 a billion installs that got installed, then trashed righ away when they didn't like it.
Or, and I think this is more likely, I think there are legions of people running scripts out there to download the files over and over to stack the download count.
