Subject RE: Sun Is Losing Its Way

     I am sorry that you think of yourself as one to be believed as
dim-witted, because I know that I never inferred anything of the sort. Do
you have some issues you would like to talk about?.  Isn't it ironic how
everyone continues bash MicroSoft because they make such horrible products,
yet everyone wanted the sourcecode released.  If it is such garbage, why
would anyone want it??? <clip> God, some people! <clip>
     As for my comments being worth the time saying, you and James did read
them and feel a need to respond. So maybe they were worth it after all.

That is funny James.  I really wonder if Aaron can truly believe we are so
dim-witted or that anything he said was worth the time saying.  God, some
people!  Micael
