Huh, sorry, you seem to be confused. Linux is a streamlined, high-tech,
noble product written by many devlopers from all over the world.

M$-software is rough, crude, and pay-too-much-for. It's definatly not
optimised for size, or speed.

You can't expect english of any standard from the devlopers that havn't
been taught english, and you can't expect perfectly spelt, and
grammatically correct english from those of us who have been taught it.

Hmm, I do think that something like "fucking Sun blows me" sais a lot
less than something like "Bugger, Sun have rewriten the standard, pity
they didn't tell anyone, again...."

Nope, if they don't like the way everyone else does things, they do there
own thing, and let everyone else support them ....
