"Standards are just papers. Yes, they're important, but they are definitely not more important than anything else, and they are a lot _less_ important than some people seem to think."
Boah Linus starts to nerve.
This damn idiot sometimes tells so much shit... it's unbelieveable.
Standarts are just papers and sometimes they're incorrect or don't cover any situation but standarts are something we all angree to because we've learned that if every "Vendor" invents the wheel by himself we wont be able to do any information exchange.
That's about standards but I'm waiting for the day if Linus decides "Boah TCP/IP has so many flaws lets use my own Protocol by default for now...".
Sorry sometimes his brain seams to use apm -z
