And here I thought this was a forum concerned with Linux. Silly me.

To know and understand your "enemy" is always a good thing wouldn't you say ?

This story made it to "Today's Big Story". That means that more people clicked on that story than any other today. So, evidently the LXer readers feel that it was worth reading or at least worth taking a look.

Thanks Bob.....I didn't know how that story selection aspect was done.

Fine. I was unaware non-linux subject matter is fair game. Also unaware mere acronyms could be censored. Apparently, someone has taken it upon themselves to interpret my 3 letters into something sinister. Coulda been 'why the fud", 'who's the first', or even 'whyzekial toroidal flabberdashers', but somehow I think not.

So, I'll post something I think much more important than a M$ vs Apple tinkle tussle, but is not related to linux.

"Keep your friends close, and your enemies closer."

Still trying to figure out where Mark Shuttleworth falls in that list.

I'd place him a lot closer to friends than either MS or Apple.

Anything can be censored, though technically that's not the correct term in this case. The title "What the ...?" might have been better received.
