Original OSNews Interviews OSNews sat down with Ian Seyler, the Founder and Lead Programmer at Return Infinity, the maker and sponsor of Baremetal OS, a 64-bit OS for x86-64 based computers written entirely in Assembly. Editor's note: We'd love to do similar interviews with the people behind other alternative or hobby OS projects. If there's a project that you'd like to learn more about, let us know.

I'd pollute the thread it belongs on, were it not locked - and I assume appealing to the guy who locked the thread will accomplish nothing.

And then you assume that polluting this thread will accomplish something? Your sense of logic escapes me.

The site doesn't have a forum. You have no way to gauge how many people feel the same way as you with a single e-mail. Perhaps if enough people voice their concern, our esteemed editor may see the error in his ways.

I appreciate your efforts Thom - I love this site, but that was not one of your finest moments.

That would not count as pollution in my view, since you'd be in the right discussion topic ;)

But something bugs me : if you have the feeling that discussion will accomplish nothing, why did you post your comment here at all ?

EDIT : Valhalla beats me there.

To do a public protest? Hard to do it any other way.
