"...if cable companies are finally forced to unbundle their services it may actually result in higher prices and worse service." Here's my alternate opinion: If cable companies are finally forced to unbundle their services it may actually result in LOWER prices and BETTER service. Who knows for sure? I say we force them to do it and find out.

The older I get, the more I realize that there are very many people in the world who just don't feel comfortable unless there is some horrible world-ending danger looming over mankind. And it's usually wildly overblown. Here's a short list of all of the things that are supposed to kill me - nuclear war, nuclear power, the end of the ozone, the end of the rain forests, global warming, and pandemics, just to name a few. I'm sure I left out a ton of false armageddons from that list. Overfishing, fertilizers, the end of oil and gas, and clear cutting forests are also supposed not to kill, but to cause us irreparable harm some time between 50 years ago and 'just around the corner'. You can only cry wolf so many times before no one believes you. I'm getting so cynical, I may take up smoking.

I suspect that this is not a problem for anyone but a minor chunk of Slashdot readers. Who bothers with linux anymore? I supported you, but the war's over and you lost. After 20 years, Linux still sucks. It sucks just like Unix did. It's why we abandoned both of them. They suck. It's time to give up and move on to something that may be of value to the masses. Unix sux. OS2 sucks. CP/M sucks. Grow up and get over it. I won't be offended when you vote my comment down. It's expected from true believers in unix/linux.
