But, of course the whole GNU/Linux/FreeSoftware thing is one giant
bug up M$'s behind. I say, let them have a PR campaign. It will sink
on its own, just as the Total Cost of Ownership campaign sank.

I know that in Debain, there are lots of "bugs" that are really wishes
for implementation of a new feature. These can be thousands of days old.
Producing an average age of bugs comparison will be a good thing for
Linux. It will drive away the ninnies who are impressed.
