By the way, he should remember two important things:
1) IPv6 is the future of everything connected to the Internet whether he likes it or not.
2) The NeXT computer he was so happy to slam in his list was actually the world's first web server on the WWW at CERN, which was the birthplace of the WWW. For that fact alone it has no business on his silly little list.
