    Well, I thought this comparision was too insulting for anyone
    working with linux and looking at the problems other poor souls
    have with NT, so I preferred not to mention NT;
    I just wanted to share my view that Ken Thompson is just a man
    with vast experience and knowledge, so we would benefit more from
    listening to him (however unpleasant it could be) than from bashing
    at him.
