I hope new beginners of assembly language programming read this, and
decide to stay away from Rosasm when they perceive how un-businesslike
and how non-professional it's main author acts in a public forum.

And you won't be able to blame anyone but yourself for you failure.

I see that you are busy cleanning out the basement/attic. If you
don't find enough junk to fill-up the dumpster, maybe you could
include anything ( floppies, CDs, boxes, manuals, etc. ) which has the
Microsoft logo attached? Be sure to format the HDs. :)

Ah, sounds like a perfect system to allow MS-Windows to "go stale"
on. Now, you seem to be all set to install Ubuntu 6.06 on your newer
box ( the one you use every day ). If an "unmentionable" OS already
exists there, just bomb it. :)

Does thinking about being such a failure disturb you? Or is it your
inability to be successful the thing that upsets you?

If you want to be a success, you have to start doing *something*. In
other words, stop doing *nothing*.

What is "pathetic" is that you will not take that step towards being a
success. No one will do it for you. And you will have no one to blame
but yourself for not taking that step.

It's really that simple, no matter how much you try and portray it as
something different.

In the end, you will be your own worst enemy.

You are wrong on that note. Nobody stays around when a child is
crying about how another kid stole his favorite toy.

So, if you are confident in your claims to the "RosAsm" trademark, why
don't you take Rene to court? You would get the chance to prove to a
jury how Rene's distribution of RosAsm somehow delutes your income
from a product carrying the same name.

Who's machine is it? If Joe doesn't get root priviliges, who does? Some
'bot that Ubuntu installed? Autoexec.bat has root privileges but Joe
doesn't??? Would Windows fly if it didn't allow you administrator
access? True, Joe can easily shoot himself in the foot as root - but
it's *his* foot!

Well, yes, I assume that "George Guru" can figure a way past it. I'm
still pretty suspicious of any distro that doesn't give root to the
owner of the machine!
