Comment Pournelle's a fool and the downfall of Byte (Score 1) 96

Hear Hear! Pournelle's columns have, historically, been full of mis-information and dreck. For example, in the particular column he posts this month on his site (that slams Linux, by the way) he makes the assertion that you cannot use a Palm III in an old-stlye PalmPilot dock. Funny, mine works fine. The only problem is you have to give the Palm III a light "push" (rather than just dropping it in) to make sure the little I/O door gets pushed aside. Other than that, it works fine. It sits in my old cradle, and syncs on demand.

Fool.
