Guys, this is not a dick-sucking contest. If you want to parse PE binaries, go right ahead.
If Red Hat wants to deep-throat Microsoft, that’s *your* issue. That has nothing what-so-ever to do with the kernel I maintain.

    Yes, what we were saying was that we got emails about Nooks for about three years when they *weren’t* available in the UK. We know they are now, we reported on it when Barnes & Noble started selling them here.

    Fab, you’re my muse. At least you made me assemble a bunch of thoughts on Firefox OS and app development in the future. You guys have been mentioned in a post I just wrote and I’m really hoping for Firefox OS to succeed, because I considered it part of a free and open web:

    Thank you so much for keeping me in the Linux world with your show, since I’m currently also a “freedom hater” ;) on a Mac, studying web development in Denmark.

    As a German, I really enjoy Fab going crazy with the accent from time to time. Looking forward to the next show!
