Hi,

I don't blog that often. To date I have not had a blog! I do read some blogs but the composition along with grammar tends to turn me off. Add in spelling, netspeak or AOL type entries and you will loose me.

I work with the 'Slackware-Links' wiki. More than just SlackwareŽ links! This wiki has been a interesting creation. To date it requires a lot of my time. I do hope it provides useful tools, links and even GNU/Linux to the multiple users.

Those who know me via the LQ forums or even privately know that I believe in ethics and morality. I'm no goody two shoes but I do believe we lead by examples.

If you happen to read or participate at the LQ SlackwareŽ forum you will see my steadfast opinion is constant. Today I have had a very interesting thread with posts which has opened a can of worms for arny@arny.ro (author/plagiarist for BW64) a parasitic copy of SlackwareŽ. I have peruse the BW64 releases and have found a lot of plagiarism on the part of arny and crew. I believe arny thinks it's ok to just copy everything then 'sed' 'BlueWhite64' to replace 'SlackwareŽ' then release a distribution. The copyright and even trademark violations along with the GNU/GPL blessings he can ethically and morally distribute BW64. For one the copyright infringements are there. The full GNU/GPL license has several violations as I understand the GNU/GPL. I'm no lawyer but the license is not that complicated. The copyright is another story all together in it's own. The trademark errors have been corrected or so it seems. I really don't want to spend that much time in defending SlackwareŽ infringements. You will notice that I link a lot of the $.50 words. This is so that parties don't get confused. Some people don't use English(U.S.) as there primary or even second language. I too mangle sometimes but I do attempt to be proper along with understanding.

I've got mouths to feed! 6 of them. They eat hay. If you read my bio you will see that I have horses.

    Quotes from the BW64 site:
    Quote:
    It strictly follows Slackware's development line, offering the same user experience as Slackware does on the 32-bit Intel architecture.
    Quote:
    I'd like to Thanks to Patrick J. Volkerding, Robby Workman, Eric Hameleers, Piter Punk for their work on the Slackware Linux. Also, thanks to all others who send reports, patches, suggestions, fixes to the Slackware team. Thank You All!
    If anyone else thinks there's a problem with what they're doing, why hasn't someone done something about it?

    Seems Free Software (as a whole) has little marketing and legal defense.

    Keep up the good work. Thanks.
