Why was this modded down?

It's absolutely correct in a technical sense.

I modded oftopic because this article is not about NexT

No, it's about GTK+ 2.9.0 -- and one "new" feature in GTK+ 2.9.0 is something that NeXT had in the 80's.

So not entirely off-topic.

He's replying to someone... This guy shouldn't have votes, seriously...

This forum is getting to be ridiculous, if people can't be slightly off topic inside a thread...

If you want to mod something off-topic, you should mod the original poster down. Modding me down for responding is a bit excessive, especially as the information was correct and to some degree interesting.

After all, some degree of topic drift should be allowed in the thread to make the resulting conversation a bit interesting. There's a difference between talking about the history of certain features (it's interesting how ahead of its time NeXT was), and just bringing up off-topic comments for inflammatory effect (e.g. KDE).

I'm a bit annoyed, to be frank, in over 200 comments this is only the fifth time I've been modded down.
