The way I understood his post is that we shouldn't abandon Metro because it serves a purpose on RT, regardless of whether or not it belongs on other platforms. I don't think RT needs to go away so much as it needs a name that doesn't use "Windows"

Choice can be a good thing. Besides, you never know when he might have a lady friend over who's just dying to see the Director's Cut of Midgets Take Manhattan or Dwarfs Do Debbie Doing Dallas.
CD-R/DVD-R has a shelf life of about 5 to 10 years. Beyond that, your data will probably still be readable but it's going to become hit-or-miss. Factory-stamped DVDs do have a much longer shelf life, but that's not really relevant here. Hard drives and magnetic tape should retain data reliably for 10 to 20 years, making them a better option.

I don't trust anonymous comments on Slashdot. Just look at all the nonsense (hosts files for one) that's based in this thread alone.
I'd trust code I can see from a place I don't trust more than I'd trust code I can't see from a place I like.
This could quite possibly qualify as "civil disobedience", which has a long history in the US.
If contributing to open source projects is wrong, then I don't want anybody to be right.
