Joseph, what does your statement above, "GRP installs are OK for a lot of
people..." have to do with a reasonable comparison of the two distros?
You still seem to have difficulty understanding the nature of Usenet, even
though you claim to have been using it from the beginning. You see, when
you make a statement or express an opinion you are implicitly inviting
comment. If you don't want to participate in open discussions, don't post!

now you accuse him of "ranting"- my newsreader shows 136 lines for your
original, Washed Phenom's reply is 36 lines including quotes.

IOW, follow my words, not my actions

and here I snip another 39 lines from you, which have nothing to do with a
"reasonable comparison of the two distros", once again demonstrating that
it's OK for *you* to rant and post off topic, but heaven forbid anyone
else be exteneded that privilege. BTW, I certainly don't consider Phenom's
post OT, and, putting aside the sermon, by extension don't consider your
response OT either; I'm taking issue with your hypocrisy.
neither on-topic nor a reasonable agrument
