I challenge you to show any ad-hominem in my reply. I merely
translated James' message. I made no comment as to whether or not I
agree with it, and I continue to reserve silence on that question.
I also don't recall James posting negative comments about Wine every
time Slashdot/Osnews/anyone has a news entry about Wine, nor
attacking their channel, or forums. James has only posted his views
on the ReactOS forum and mailing list. He has not gone out of his way
to attack anyone, so I believe that comparing him to McCormack is
unfair. James *was* banned from their Mailing List, so at least some
of his points would seem to be valid.
You are free to disagree with his views or find him annoying -- that
is Aleksey's business, he makes the law. As long as James continues
to be one of the most active developers of today and finally helping
to fix Win32k (with Timo and Magnus), I doubt you will have much luck
Please don't attack me again for merely clearing up facts from
opinions from crazed stories of Wine world domination plans.
