Crazies: Linux w/o Ethernet, Multi-Monitor, Multi-User

It seems the crazies are back to invading the Linux kernel mailing list and/or have expanded their trolling cult.

Linux Kernel Proposal For Dropping Keyboard Support

It seems to be the season for trolling the Linux kernel mailing list with idiotic statements.
