Your last sentence just killed the premise of your post. So, Slashdot is now invaded by angsty idiotic inept clueless poseurs who think they are geeks but are not, and...and...somehow these clueless idiots know enough to be aware that McAfee sucks. That seems to tell me that a growing number of people are becoming *less* ignorant and more savvy and knowledgeable about these things. If even the "clueless idiots" know enough to make fun of McAfee products, then maybe Intel's $7B purchase isn't such a smart thing. But what do I know, I'm just a socially inept clueless poseur pseudo-geek.
