Pan has won The Register's Flame of the Week award for its new beta, Andrew Orlowski Can Kiss My Ass.

Orlowski was the author of last week's Register article, "Gnome version 2.0 officially not of use to anyone". The article was a Today's Big Story here on Linux Today. Since code speaks louder than words, a new release of Pan seemed like the logical way to respond to the Register's content-free article.

[The readers] that made that article so popular here on LinuxToday might enjoy trying their hands at writing code for their favorite desktop(s). It's much more fun than flaming in the forums :)

From the Flame of the Week:

"GNOME-compatible Usenet client software pan (that's for Pimp-Ass Newsreader) has named its latest release - version "Andrew Orlowski Can Kiss My Ass".

Charles Kerr made the announcement here , adding that the "Andrew Orlowski Can Kiss My Ass" release uses less memory and disk space when decoding attachments. It also fixes some memory leaks found in the earlier version "Hildie and Satin".

A flame indeed, but is it eligible?"
