NT*Pro Personal Dispute

  Forgive me for saying this, but it is my judgment that the dispute that
  has evolved between Charles Kelly and Tod Landis regarding the former's
  biz credentials has ceased to be a discussion of topics on this list,
  and become a personal dispute.
  Both of you, please consider taking any further ad hominem attacks off
  this list.
  I do think some useful points did emerge from this discussion.  One is,
  there is a need for well-documented historical accounts of the business
  practices of Microsoft, its partners, and its competitors.  Another is,
  reasonable people are going to disagree about the merits of competing
  Since we can't make our disagreements go away, let's focus on the
  constructive side of the debate:  on the facts of the account, on
  providing more and better sources, and so forth.  
  Let's NOT waste our energy on useless polemics, while so much useful
  work remains to be done.
