hummm, I can't believe I am really reading this. Rather than think that
Johnny Hughes and others are making a ton of money (which would warranty
such statements or subject matter); I think they spend much more than a
hap-hazzard amount of time providing this quality distro! I dunno,
statements like these just tell me you are either bored or for some
reason expect much much more for the grand cost of not a single cent.
whew! If you are not happy maybe you should move on to another freebie
or even spring big money for something that better suit your needs.
please don't burn our eyes with this kind of subject matter that I
suspect that goes against many others grain besides mine. The crew
providing this for us are doing one hell of a job and I think
commendation should be in line rather than this kind of thought.
