I think you might possibly lack sufficient familiarity with colloquial American-English usage and vocabulary such that you tend to misinterpret
My familiarity with the slang of American-English native speakers reduces to discussions on mailing lists and online boards. Probably this is a good excuse.
and occasionally read far more into what is being said
Being pedantic is mostly intended, not restricted to certain languages. Of course it's not my intention to actively discourage you to tell us about software though.
I doubt it's a causing concern or confusion to many (if any) of the other readers. And while I now understand what you're saying (with thanks for elaborating) and can now see the point you're trying to make, in the context of the post itself, it's somewhat hair-splitting and slightly OT.
Well, probably, yes. I wasn't talking about the board
but about the thread
title in the first place. When it comes to software compatibility, being precise would even help here: Given that Pipelight is "Wine software" instead of "*NIX software", it's rather likely that it will even run on OpenBSD
and other platforms which aren't actively announced on its website.
I might give it a try later.
I hope this helps you better understand where I'm coming from, and why I don't feel the need to either change the original post or drop *NIX from its title.
Agreed. My pedantry
might sometimes be misinterpreted as trolling or flaming, but in this very case it wasn't meant to. Thanks for listening.
