No, I do not. Please enlighten us. When was the last time a major tech company 
exec went to jail or prison over an obvious computer crime, like when $ony 
rooted millions of PCs? Was anyone ever indicted even? With their game 
consoles, Micro$oft routinely takes pictures of naked teenagers and sends them 
over the internet, without their knowledge or informed consent, what is up 
with that? Clearly, this is an invasion of privacy and an illegal porn 
production, so what is being done about it?

Please stop the nonsense. Your analogies are awful and misleading. if icecat 
is a band-aid, then you are asking us to put it on a brain tumor. Yes, I would 
refuse to distribute GNU-branded band-aids to brain tumor patients, while 
claiming they help, even though some may slap them on their foreheads and feel 
better due to a placebo effect. What these people need is an invasive, but 
life-saving operation. Once the windoze tumor is removed, it makes sense 
applying a band-aid.

Once again, I am not in principle against building icecat for nonfree 
platforms such as windoze, but please get a grip. It is next to useless. 
Either kindly contribute a build, or stop pestering the developers, who 
already have more work than they can handle.
