George while I like many of your points, my impression is that by
reacting so angrily, we almost make ourselves look bad.  For instance,
the Demon could have easily been a typo--if the gentleman is familiar
with Linux, he probably knows that.  

This is just my impression and my impression only.  Perhaps it comes
with getting old.  :-(

~I~ think that a calmer article, making many of the same points, would
be a better way to go.  

Yet, this may simply be because I'm old and feeble.

Forrest: This is the burden we bear, brother. We have a gig that 
would inevitably cause any girl living to think we are cool upon 
cool. Yet, we must Clark Kent our way through the dating scene, 
never to use our unfair advantage. Thank God we're pretty.
