You do know that he's a troll, and as such, he'll piggy-back on any
thread that looks like a good starting point for
yet-another-useless-spam-war on why-he-doesn't-like-KDE-4 and
why-Fedora-doesn't-suite-his-needs and/or
why-he-rather-switch-to-Ubuntu-but-but-rather-not-as-he-has-nothing-better-to-do, that will fill my junk-mail-box with 200 useless emails.
