Debating 7: Randall Kennedy, Thom Holwerda

Two weeks ago, I published an article in which I explained what was wrong about Randall Kennedy’s “Windows 7 Unmasked” article. This was noted by Infoworld’s editor-in-chief Eric Knorr, who suggested that Randall and I enter into an email debate regarding the various points made in our articles. We agreed upon publishing this email thread as-is, unedited (I didn’t even fix the spelling errors), on both Infoworld and OSNews. We agreed that Randall would start the debate, and that I had the final word. Read on for the entertaining email debate (I figured it would be best to give each email its own page, for clarity’s sake. My apologies if this makes each individual page much shorter than what you’re used to from OSNews).
