Yes, I also find it preferable when it comes from Utah residents (who are, preferably, chief scientists). You find that not everyone can understand Einstein's theories let alone question them. (Can any of the Loons do this? I guess not! *snicker*)
Is true. Utah residents have the requisite high IQ for high energy physics. Loons are severely lacking in this department.
About the only 'expertise' we have seen so far from the Linux lunatics is, when beggar boy leclite tried his hand at impersonating some D W Stein through the dwstein ID. But unfortunately for the bum, the whole thing went phut when he tried to argue that server operating systems are not one trick ponies. Torvalds himself struck him down! That was hilarious.
P.S. I heard the book is coming out shortly. The ISBN numbers seem to be already assigned, so that is one less delay.
