... and for buttmonkey's sake - there's a bunch of people building a stack
of software that is designed to appeal to a planet full of people. You're
not prepared to forgive them for a bit of posturing? You don't think this
list is capable of handling some tongue-in-cheek battle banter? Hell *yes*
we want to kick OS X's butt [1] and pull those users back on to a Free
platform! No fucking around.

Here is the memo if you didn't receive it: GNOME and Free Software is all
about *SAVING THE WORLD* not drawing pissy little buttons on the screen.
