Welcome to COLA. Similar high level pronouncements from Jeb include how
Virtual Desktops are better than Multiple x screens and monitors,
Ahlstrom on Mono, Ahlstrom on the GPL, Roy on KDE, Koehlmann on anti
aliasing and Tel"net" Porter on OSS applications not available for
Windows (they all were), Halliwell on why multi function handhelds are
bad (better to have several devices in case you get mugged
.. bwahahahahahahaha). I could go on....

COLA is a laugh a minute!
