I didn't know the man but I know his company, and wanted to say something positive about that. I don't follow how that's disrespectful in any way; just the opposite in fact.

Of course I'm sorry for his passing, but if I had stuck with a company for more than 2 decades and then became CEO, I certainly wouldn't mind being associated with that.

After all, it's hard to talk about Steve Jobs without mentioning his impact on Apple and on consumer technology via their products.

I will make a 50/50 solution of cat water and Vitamin E skin cream to produce a lubricating substance which I will rub on my behind. Then I will commence to lubricate the handle of my sacrificed tooth brush which I plan to use as a pry bar. I will use iTunes and my HD 555s to keep my mind off the task at hand. Once the majority of a cheek is separated I will use a section of a cardboard box from a mini fridge as a spatula.


I'm really nervous.

Also, if you don't have all the facts, it's best not to make a conclusion about the conspiracies of how he died. There's too many possibilities. For an example, it could be possible that he had was dying of COVID and didn't want to suffer anymore. We don't know. Let's not spread false rumors.
I see nothing wrong with talking about msi products here, most people are commending them, definitely not disrespectful.
I see nothing wrong with speculation, the internet and forums are not an encyclopedia, however there are some internet encyclopedias/databases out there that do exist, like wiki.
I try not to tell other people how to behave, you know, because its none of my business .

welcome to reality, and a world full if funded shills. you weren't believing the internet at face value now were you?

how do you think Linus became the multi-millionaire he is today? Totally didn't use his position to exploit the stock market, or shill bills. nope never once!

oh right, he promised his community he's not doing the trading.
