Aharonian is making an ass of himself here. You could say "they have a
secret plan to kill Linux" about anybody, and without specifics it's
worth nothing.


Wal-Mart has a secret plan to wipe out Free Software and make RMS get a
job as a waiter, as soon as they wipe out Amazon and Home Depot.

See how easy that was?

All-out war?  They're not reading any Sun Tsu books I know.
"Warner Music endorses Windows Media format"


Here's a serious question, which Mr. Bad asked quite a while ago, but
I haven't seen a reasonable answer to. Why do GNU/Linux distributions
have both crond and atd running? Why not just run atrun from cron? 

The smaller your ps ax output, the more elite you are.
