I could not care less what thoughts Smirnov cares to express.
He should clearly study the two volymes "Winning Ways" by
Berlekamp, Conway, and Guy.
Myself, I hold a doctorate in Fourier analysis and to me
Nettoe is a kind of educational puzzle, in the vein of Polya's
"How to solve it", giving young people a possibility to train
their mind and abilities to perform analysis. The game of
Tic-Tac-Toe is theoretically simple, since the first player
always has a winning strategy, but it is the mental process
of finding that strategy, and proving it in battle, which is
the valuable merit of Tic-Tac-Toe. (As a programmer I earn
my wings in GNU Inetutils! Nettoe is a portability matter.)

No, I am not subscribed. The desktop file works fine for me
with Openbox and Debian unstable. Since I never use KDE and
Gnome otherwise, but rather wmii and dwm, I cannot tell in
A quick experiment on OpenSolaris and Gnome2, show that
is the correct location there, but there I had to write
Explicitly invoking Xterm. This is clearly implicitly
taken care of in Debian.
Also I had the idea of using the crossed over vowel O as the
optimal icon. It might be worth a try to extract an icon from
that image, though.
