Oh, #2 was my ping in which I made a humorous (I thought) comment about who might come running to this thread and what they might say. . . it was not appreciated by someone and the Admin Moderator agreed and sent it to Freeper Neverneverland. So I posted a more Caspar Milquetoast ping. . . #4 probably proved me correct.

Don’t worry Sword. The FUD Packers will be here. Moths to a flame type of thing.

LOL. Okay, I can see that... :)

Well, we needn't hyper-anticipate the predictable barrage from the trolls and haters. They are who they are, they'll be who they'll be. They're easy enough to ignore, and they usually eventually give up.

Anyway, thanks for posting this. I've always thought a lot of Jean-Louis Gassée, as the guy that brought BeOS to existence. There are days when I wonder what OS-X would have been like if BeOS had been chosen as the undercarriage instead of NeXTSTEP. I played with BeOS years ago, it was pretty neat.

BTW, what is it about the letter "e" that makes companies lower-case or subscript it:

BeOS
NeXTSTEP
Intel
Are we looking at the fingerprints of the Illuminati or something here?
