No, he was creating FUD, and alot of it. There has been zero proof of anything he's said. His spouting off of FUD against MOS was a huge turn off, atleast for me. I don't appreciate SCO's FUD against Linux, I don't appreciate Ben's FUD against MOS.

I was happy to initially hear about OS4 as that ment that sham DE desktop was over. Going to a native OS was far more in my favor then DE ever was. I admit I was (and still am) skeptical of a game porting company to build an OS, but it was certainly good news vs DE. Then the FUD and Anti-American drool started to flow from Ben. Please remember Ralph is not my bud, never has, and probably never will be. We've had our fair share of words on CSAM over the years, so I have no reason to be in his corner on this issue. Ben convinced me that even though I have negative opinions of Ralph, Ralph was more then likely in the right on this issue.
As far as a lawyer (which AFAIK, he's not a member of the bar [or it's equivalent] in his own country) is concerned and taking their words with respect, what planet are you from? I've had my fair share of lawyers, and I'm not all that impressed by most of them. When I think lawyer, I automatically associate them with the word, "weasel." So let me get this right Samface, I'm suppost to take the word of a wannabe lawyer, who co-owns a game porting company, word on their competition legal status? What's next, you expect me to pay 800 Euros for a CPU/Mobo that is substandard that currently only runs Linux?
