OS/2 and eComStation After god knows how many years, it's finally here: the final release of eComStation 2.0. We first reported on eComStation 2.0 back in December 2005, when the first beta was released, and between then and now, we've seen countless betas and release candidates come and go, but the wait is finally over.

Using the word "retarded" is just as unacceptable as calling someone a "nigger". First of all, it's an old term one would never think to apply to someone with an intellectual disability. Secondly, to use it as a synonym for "stupid" is just as wrong. Is it okay to call somebody a "fag" if you think they're acting silly? I doubt anyone of intelligence would agree (I could say "anyone over 20", but agism is just as offensive). I know several people with intellectual disablities, more than one of whom both use computers, and are quite aware of what an OS is. Don't fool yourself into thinking you're a mensa candidate because you know something your friends and family don't. And please don't rebut a response to an offensive comment by being even more offensive than the original post.

In short: Fuck you! ;-)

I assume the suffocating hypocrisy that is telling others to "f--k off" because they used what you consider a politically incorrect term, must have been lost in your rush to make up all those false analogies for that self righteous rant.

Wether the correctness of the term "retard" is questionable, there is no such debate for "f--k off."

If you are going to be ever so "concerned" about propriety, at least try to even pretend to be consistent.

Why don't you get your panties out of a bunch and loosen up? Calling someone a retard is not like using the N-word. Look the terms up in a dictionary. If I have to explain that further, you are...well...retarded. Take your PC crap and (fill in the blank).
