He was kinda annoying for a decade or so there.
The best part, IMHO...

To say that this was a bit of a barrier for the newbie Linux user is a pretty big understatement.
So, to answer you implicit question, no, I do not expect him to come and fill my petrol tank or calibrate my tires. But it would have been awful handy if he hadn't gotten in the way of other people doing it. Indeed, if he'd been willing to play ball, I have to imagine that djbdns and qmail might well be standards today, instead of relegated to the land of relatively forgotten OSS software.

I mean the man no ill will. I just wanted to -- half jokingly -- call out that when you see DJB's name in print these days, it's usually because of something *good*, and not because of Yet Another Gripe About Licensing (or somesuch).
