Re: [vox] subject line changes >was Win2000...

Joe provides a unique perspective on the Linux industry, even if he is
prone to, um, "colorful" metaphors when describing software/people/ideas
he doesn't like. He's Portugese. The Portugese are a seafaring race.
Seafaring people are mostly sailors. Sailors cuss like ... er, sailors.
Besides, the subject didn't change. Joe could have simply stated that he
found GTK to be a poor tool kit. He could also have stated it "blows"
and left it that, but he choose to plumb the very depths of his
disappointment with GTK. Filters off.

I, for one, would have been disappointed (and mildly surprised) at any
other verbage.

P.S. VA Linux time to delivery blows like a crack whore.
