Ok, ;~) That last sentence is just going to confuse Larry, being that HF is his first choice of stores to buy from.
Sorry Larry, I could not resist. ;~)

Nope.
From what I've heard, repeatedly: Ayup.

Not Linux either. Linux is a knock-off of a 50-year old operating system designed by a money-losing division of your local telephone company. As of today, it runs about 2% of the world's computers and most of those are in a parent's basement.

My local telephone company was Southern New England Telephone and had nothing to do with the development of operating systems. However if your view of Bell Labs is that it was "a money-losint division of your local telephone company" then I don't care what the problem is, you are part of it.

Southern New England Telephone was, and is, an operating division of AT&T. The company now does business as AT&T Connecticut.
Bell Labs never made a proft; it was an expense division.

Check YOUR facts. Prior to 1986, The Southern New England Telephone Company had been a minority holding of AT&T until February 1986, when AT&T withdrew its 23% holding. SNET then became its own company, operating a telecommunications sales division, Sonecor Systems Division, which began operations on January 1, 1983 and sold equipment in competition with AT&T before the Bell System divestiture. SNET also operated SNET America, which sold long distance services within Connecticut.
Under threats of a hostile takeover, Southern New England Telephone underwent a restructuring in 1986, creating Southern New England Telecommunications as the holding company of SNET and its related businesses.
Southern New England Telecommunications was acquired by SBC Communications in 1998.
SNET Corporation was merged into AT&T Teleholdings, formerly Ameritech, in 2006 and ceased to exist.

Even if whoever owned the other 80 percent told you not to?

Depends how many "owners" the other 80% was spread over.

So how many "owners" would it take before you obeyed the 20% instead of the 80%?

If none of the others owned more than 10% I'd "consider" listening to the one that owned 20, but it would depend on how well the 80 agreed.
