it's more another example of the shocking waste of talent and
resources of proprietary companies spongeing off of software libre

there's nothing confidential discussed.  and there do exist telephone


anyway, they are really wonderful people.  the conversations are
fascinating, and funny, and often bugger-all to do with PowerISA :)
