Bah, no, that reporter asked Novell for a comment, not me, so a NOVELL
spokesperson answered them.  If you note, the original reporter of the
story asked me directly and I answered directly.  It's not like my email
address is hard to find.

I have no personal spokesperson, most of the time I barely speak for

And as for the name, yes, "Greg K-H" is the same as "Greg
Kroah-Hartman", it's easier to spell and pronounce and type.  Heck, my
own kids end up doing the same abbreviation of their last name in
preschool just to handle the mess we made of our last names...
