W1NNT number plate vendor mocks L1NUX

'No specialist training required'

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Updated It's all go on the OS-flavoured eBay number plate auction front, and no messing. No sooner had we reported on the availability of the highly-desirable L1NUX combo, than the owner of W1NNT decided to cash in on his fortuitous registration assemblage.

However, just to add spice to the kernel-fiddlers versus apologistas automotive head-to-head, the W1NNT vendor has added this to his blurb:

PS - Being Windows, The user will be able to get into the car and drive with no specialist training required. Also, the addition of add-on components will not require time-consuming recompiling of the Kernel.

W1NNT has as of right now failed to attract the miniumum starting bid of £1,500, while L1NUX currently stands at £5,300, with five days left to run on the auction. V1STA, meanwhile is still available for a cool £135,224.13. ®

Update

The original W1NNT listing was removed this morning and has now reappeared here.
