You're probably going to be waiting a long time. I suggest that
instead you think about doing something deserving of respect. Taking a
copy of solaris, written by other people, and a copy of Debian, also
written by other people, and then putting them next to each other, in
violation of the license on lots of these things? That is not
deserving of respect.

Coming along and telling us that the license we chose deliberately for
the purpose of prohibiting you from doing this is wrong? That's not
deserving of respect either.

Now go away and stop doing it.
