I'm sure he is correct. But he doesn't have to be an ass about it. He started right off with unwarranted sarcasm, graduated to foul language and it went downhill from there, leading to personal attacks.
I never claimed to be a "visionary." I'm far, far from that. The idea isn't even original, people have talked about it for years. It just strikes me that it makes a lot of sense given system architecture trends. Outright dismissal accompanied by foul language, holier-than-thou attitudes and outright insults says much more about Al than it does me.
Al definitely lost a notch or too on my respect ladder and that's a pity because I've generally enjoyed reading his posts/articles.
