You are the arrogant person!

I am only telling you facts. So far not a single person did show
interest for a HURD port of cdrecord and cdrecord is one of the free
programs wit the highest interest. Name a non-trivial program that has
been ported because there was a demand for it.

There are more then zero people with interest for BeOS, there are zero people
with interest for cdrecord on HURD. It there were people doing everydays
work on HURD, then there would be interest for cdrecord on HURD. This is
a simple statement so even you should understand it.

Sorry, but I don't like to continue a discussion this way if it is biased
by your way of only counting ideas if they are compatible with your mind.
