Dude, that page has Google PageRank 7.  You know how
much a link from a 7 is worth?  That's like eyeballs
on the hoof, ready to get all sticky and monetized
and stuff.

Actually, Rick helped me correct the
"Hundredth Monkey" section of that page too.

I can't stand hardware/OS combinations that make your
box into the test platform for a strange and terrible
combination of OS updates and third-party drivers.

It's time that these raving ideological fanatics keep
their wacky ravings away from me and my computer.
Any vendor who values its "intellectual property"
more than users' time and trouble can go ahead and
keep their hardware -- I don't want it.
