I liked my response to this so much I thought the second time I'd actually
send it to the list, not just Bob. Now he gets to laugh twice.

What's this "we", white man?

_Miguel_ is trying to win users over to justify the $15 million venture
capital Helix^W Ximian have just got, surely? "More users" is IPO speak
for "Too lazy to write a business plan or develop a viable business 
model", after all.  Who needs a product when you've got market share?

 Resistance, of course."
