aaronl: a free software implementation of a generic non-debian-specific fully featured package manager for Linux/Unix systems that has both a GUI and command line version? That's the one.

Now, just to clarify, are you sure you want to pick a fight with us? I made it clear my views are my own, not my companies. Were I you (and, given what an ass you've made of yourself, I'm glad I'm not), I'd stop and think a little more before mouthing off about GNOME, or Helix, or difficult concepts like shared memory that you don't seem to understand.

For the innocent bystanders: aaronl has been on a kick recently to "remove the bloat" from a variety of programs by removing functionality, in this case, the consistancy, user control, and other benefits provided by the GNOME framework. Specifically, he has posted a number of misleading facts about the memory used by a GNOME application. For a much better explanation than I could give, have a look at mjs' recent diary entries.
