I would not ether unless I had a tech support call about a x showing up when the guy pressed the r key... This really about ASCII codes. The person who created it thinks 1. NSA is focued on U.S. keyboards (as it is the English standered each key is mapped to a ASCII code so if you mix up those codes and send all your e-mail in HTML where the codes are mapped to the letters then your safe 2. NSA is so big and working on so many streams of info that the amount of work it would take to create a single system to work on the font that few will use its pointless. (apple effect for hackers) Also NSA is looking most likely for keywords this will not set off any of those.

honestly the idea of linux is perfect but how it's done is completely bad... when it comes down to it... really linux is a hack job between everyone who is programing for it. we need a central force to unify all the distro's and get them under one tent... kernal,gnu... all the little peaces of Linux . honestly if i am reading the tea leaves right Valve software is thinking that way... every time we have a fight in the linux world we "tree" off and split the community's to a point now that each group hates each other and will not work with each other for the betterment of Linux. are values are the same but we using different ways to get there and we are fighting to be come the "leader" of linux the gold slandered distro. and who is winning this war? Microsoft and apple, that's another mess Apple using Free BSD as there tool to destroy All of linux and with are free tools like apachi... we should fight Apple harder then anyone else. in 2 to 5 years Valve software's linux will be Boss and it's because all there dev. will be in house, well tested and clean, no more comand line for common taskes. set top boxes and standered hardware for most. that's how i see it. and microsoft will still be the big fish in the sea.

i do a lot with music and i been playing around with rack based sound gear and i see a lot of old stuff like: the shure PSM 900 the antenna uses BNC connector, also have a Tube Pre Amp the tubes are from like what the 40's? (even to old for me to admit the full history) and things like TRS cables and XLR been around forever. don't even get me started on cisco they still have a console port that uses a rollover cable and a db- 9 (com port) on the other end... so you new network admin's better spring for that db-9 to usb adapter. even like x86,tcp/ip and ect. are still in use... net admins learn about the history in one class and use it the next.
