It is alien Linuxoid software packed with trojan backdoors up to its donkey ears that's in fact a menace to humanity on this planet.

Unless I'm using a known library or application under Linux, it better come with source that I can review before compiling and putting it to use. I can't do that under Windows. You have to count on 3rd part virus / malware protection vendors to do their pattern matching magic to tell you you're screwed.

I'm not interested in being attached to the end of Microsoft's leash.

I didn't really intend to hurt your feelings with my previous message. But let's face the things the way they actually are. Practically all malware that can physically appear on a law-abiding Windozer or Macophage's box these days actually comes through the backdoors of the Internet -- the lame and lagging Linuxoid world of slowpoke browsers, home brewed string based markup "languages", and real time interpreted code Eval's.

There are certain issues a language developer must always think about way ahead of their user base. I can work miracles in 32 bits with my FBSL and especially with some custom builds I compile from my sources to explore or verify some cool ideas of mine that are still coming to my mind from time to time as afterthoughts. But I have always been very picky about what I'd allow to appear in my public builds. It wasn't that pesky BCX affair that aroused my awareness as to what I was doing and who I was teaming up with. That was actually a piece of cake to handle without resorting to heavy artillery. What really scared me the moment it was brought to my attention by someone I can't unfortunately recollect now was this.
