I'm extremely sorry and ashamed that I did not take a screenshot of the
main page at the time of my original message (7/27/97 10:48pm CDT), as it
clearly stated that there was a FAQ for the "top OS", rather than how it is
stated now under the What's New sidebar.  In retrospect, I have
overreacted, but then again, when I'm tired, OS-bashing statements on the
contest organizer's page aren't the thing I want to see.

I can't argue with you here.  There doesn't seem to be *any* correct stats
to quote at this point, which makes any claim false either way.
