Corbet, you are right, my provocation lied more in the reference to the second thread which was filled with nothing but unprovoked insults directed towards me though.
But I guess we can do without the symbiotic relationship between trolling and troll cannibalism.. ;)
Btw. sorry for my mixup with me claiming you writing me trying to push rpm5 on mageia, I was thinking of the more slanderous osnews article where I even also was blamed as the developer ticking Jeff off..
For what it's worth, your article did generate positive responses and mostly healthy discussions and exchange of information that was actually quite well received at fellows at Mandriva and in our community. :)
Given that you wrote the article watching from the side-line online, you actually showed a remarkable insight which no way in hell can be compared to Fox whatsoever.
