    lolwut? Newsletter? It was a normal usenet post.

    Edit:
    Also, the patent has not been declared invalid. The International Trade Commission does not have the power to do that.

            Usenet is a communication forum, like this one, except it's not HTTP but NNTP and decentralized. Linus posted in a thread there. Someone posted a thread, asking about how FAT32 works, and Linus replied to help him. In that reply, he explained how FAT32's long names work.

            Is your Wikipedia broken?

              newsletter is print media there is NO "newsletter" in the original meaning in the "internet"

              usenet is a modern version of a traditional "newsletter"

                It seems you're right. This forum can probably be "newsletter" as well.

                  Right it is-->what you use it for...

                  if you use use-next as a newsletter then it is a newsletter.

                    This is just one example of Q's inability to learn from others and say, just once in his life, "thanks, I didn't know that."

                    PS:
                    I've been posting on Usenet for 15 years. I have a very good idea of what it is.
