As I've already stated, at least once on this list, it was a decision 
made at the beginning of SoC last fucking year, due to the time 
constraints.  If you don't like it, write a standard for a time machine, 
build said time machine to said specification, use said time machine, 
and then discuss the merit of it.  Now please, let this go.

So you're comparing us to microsoft.  Thanks, get the fuck off our list, 
go fuck yourself, we're tired of your shit.

I apologize to anyone this email has offended, but this needed to be said.
