Hey, have you read the thread at all?

Respecting the developer is exactly why the code has been removed.

Being a developer gives you not only legal rights, but lots of other
rights. One right IT DOES NOT give you, though, is the right to add binary
hooks. That right is overridden by respecting other _developers_ rights.

Linux is all about open source. It's about making the best possible OS,
and being as user-friendly as possible, but it's about doing so within the
overriding goal of everybody being able to work together on the thing.

So please respect _our_ work.

I'm personally pretty optimistic that something can be worked out. But it
will not happen by users whining - it will happen by users askign nemosoft
politely to avoid the kernel hooks, or by other users deciding to step up
to the plate and becoming developers.
