Crap, you caught that one. Xerox started with a printer.
Billy boy started much later. I should have said "proprietary
software wasn't the norm."

And i never said that people shouldn't have that freedom.
I said they were stupid to use proprietary software, and
i still think they are.

I'm reading yours and Tony's opinions. That doesn't mean
i agree with them. If i had a closed source mind, i
would send your replies to /dev/null.

I would also charge $100 per word and make you sign a
contract saying you will give me your soul or i would
send the boys to knock in your kneecaps :)
