since you do a recap of the previous week of linux, and DLN's forum will be first discussion about linux. Would you mind possibly doing a section about summarizing interesting posts/discussions from the previous week on the forums? (like how you talked about the Microsoft thing, but do a recap every week? )

MIPS sounds impressive. I'm quite excited to see people hunting bugs in 7-Zip. I've heard that archives can be compromised in a really crazy way, and execute code in some instances. Mostly making Windows vulnerable, but you never know. It could be Linus as well.

I don't trust Linus anymore. He already appears to be embracing the "new direction." It's alleged that he has some Fembot Thot girlfriend, and he's going to destroy the sanctity of the Best Of The Best approach, in favor of pandering to liberalism. Any idiot with half a brain can figure out it's a corporate espionage and infiltration scheme to destroy anything good that outsiders have ( i.e. NORMAL SANE PEOPLE). It's everywhere. Sanity is blocked from every medium. Created your own platform like Gab? No problem. BLOCKED by Host, or ISP, or payment processor.
