Well I thought you or another one knew it. I couldn't read the whole
thread, because I subscribed to this list a short time ago.

Well, I know iX being Linux biased in the past ... don't know, if they
changed their minds. I think the main problem is, that most of their
"PD-Unix readers" are in the Linux camp ... so figure out what they
write about as the only truth...

Main argument in the past (about 2 years ago, the time around/before
4.4lite) was the simple statement, that in BSD there has happend
nothing new ... "it is as it is" ... so what to write about it ...

But to justice an operating system, about how "colorful" it is
or whatever ... *sigh*

Let's see, how the article in iX is.

Let's see if I can change the Cc: line in mutt ... I'm just trying
Michael Eltkins mutt mailer ... looks like elm, but I'm still not
really familiar with it ;-)
