Here at Lerici Software Ltd we like to say that "the dogmas of the quiet
past are inadequate to the stormy present," and " Quarrel not at all. No
man resolved to make the most of himself can spare time for personal
contention. Still less can he afford to take all the consequences, 
including the vitiating of his temper and the loss of self control. Yield
to larger things to which you can show no more than equal right; and yield
lesser ones, though clearly your own. Better give your path to a dog
than be bitten by him in contesting for the right. Even killing the dog
would not cure the bite. ", also; "Towering genius disdains the beaten
path," not to mention; "It is easy to find a brigadier general in five
minutes, but it is not easy to replace a hundred and ten horses." 

All the words of Abraham Lincoln.

Hmmm, well thats not the impression I get from Richard Stallman's diatribes.
He is far more vituperative and the FSF in general is vitrolic to the
extreme when it comes to Apple. My small grievance is nothing compared
to some of their/your prosetylizing.

* YOU ARE THE ONE DISCUSSING IT * in a most obnoxious way.
only asked a simple technical question. If you chose not to answer it
it would have gone away. Save the anal retentive attitude for the
QuickCAM crowd.
