Windows was shit, GEM was miles better and you know it.

PS.  Don't let the weirdo section claim OS2 was any good only warp was
worth the media and that's only because windows 3.11 was so bloody

I didn't say time served on list.  I said time in.  You said you'd
been in business for 30 years (30 years ago I was into riding my
grifter and pretending it was a motorscooter to go with my Fred Perry
t-shirt and crew cut, I'm pretty sure this makes me the winner of this
one :P ) and used linux for 10 (10 years ago I was contracted to the
UK's top linux consultancy to write a kernal driver for solid state
memory devices, you win this round it would have been more fun coming
to linux for the first time)  ;)

> Wow what a pissy little shit I am or am I?

Yes you are a pissy little shit but you hide it well by pretending you
are just playing.  We all know the truth though so you can quit
pretending :p
