I don't know what this guys problem is... I can only agree on point 1 with him (try to improve the documentation).

I can agree we should try and improve the documentation,
But if i had a dollar for everyone that asked a question without ever reading the documentation I would be pretty well off  :)

From a certain standpoint he does have good points. It's the standpoint of drawing customers away from Windows.

But I think most of us will agree the main focus of a Gnu/Linux distro is not 'to draw away Microsoft customers'??

Still, it's interesting to finally read someone who claims we should fork projects more often :o
How about Victor, your very own fork of Vi  :D
