Editorial A couple of years ago, a professor at my university had a very interesting thought exchange with the class I was in. We were a small group, and I knew most of them, they were my friends. Anyway, we had a talk about language purism - not an unimportant subject if you study English in The Netherlands.

Of course, the massively crucial difference between Bliz and Psy is ignored conveniently:

WoW is a subscription service.

Mac OS X is not.

In fact, in the Autodesk case, this was specifically mentioned - as in, had AutoVAD been a subscription service, Autodesk would have had a much better point to make.

PJ has completely lost it in the Psystar case, as she is convinced it is nothing but an attempt to destroy open source, funded by Microsoft, part of the SCO case. She's gone nutters.

So's OS X, you troll. It's rented, not sold.

As for PJ being nuts, let's recall she was right about SCO. There will come a day when we'll see if she was right or wrong about Psystar. I have a long memory and I use ScrapBook. The above quote will be waiting for you and that day on my harddrive.

Discussion's over. No need to resort to insults. Just because someone disagrees with you doesn't make him a troll. The fact that you need to resort to insults shows how poor your arguments are.

And don't we know it? While we were all running in circles thinking that The SCO Group had an iron-clad case, and that IBM and Linux didn't stand a chance, Pamela was the sole voice in the crowd questioning TSG's claims.

Revise history much, wirespot?

Well... it's not like RMS's fans don't do the same thing. Taking brain-dead simple observations from the past that most everyone recognized, and then retroactively asserting that RMS (or Pamela) was the only one who saw them.
