It's possible that Ken Starks has grown up a bit, since the days a few
years ago when he started blogging (at the time, omitting his name and
using solely the moniker "Helios"). At the time of his very noisy
appearance on the Internet, he seemed to do little beside trolling, and,
for a blog supposedly concerned with Linux, seemed to spend the vast
majority of its time slagging Microsoft Corporation.
On reflection, I'm not sure Mr. Starks has grown up discernibly. And I
would inclined, if the man told me the sun was going to rise up in the
east, to get up early and check. Or better yet, just not waste time on
him at al.
